__Day 3- Fractions and 1st Quiz!__
Class started with doing

**, using digits 0-9.**__Problem 9__
Find out: How many ways can we form a 2 digit equation without repeating any digits?

**( _ _ + _ _ = _ _)**

My partners and I discussed mostly about how to arrive to getting the

BIGGEST and

**SMALLEST**equations that we can come up with.
We started with the biggest and smallest number sum possible and did trial and error with the digits till we got the best answers.

**BIGGEST Equation: 98 ( number sum) = 25 + 73**

**Smallest Equation : 39 (number sum) = 15 + 24**

Then, we had our quiz! The moment that I was afraid of! Thank goodness it was not that tough for me and I learnt some good pointers during our discussion of the 2nd question in the Quiz.

**Meaning of ENRICHMENT sessions:**

**Providing more challenging practices for children without introducing new concepts.**

An illustration that I found useful to remember what Enrichment is:

To weave more strings with the single string I have, strengthening the bond, making my string a stronger one!

**Unlike ACCELERATION sessions**: where children learn a new topic or concept of a higher level.

It sure is a great difference between these two terms!

**were on Fractions and we thought of a variety of ways to share parts of a rectangle equally among 3 and 4 persons.**

__Problems 11 and 12__
Especially in

**Problem 11**, we really cracked our brains and thought of out-of-the-box ideas to share a rectangle equally amongst 4 people! It was a good way to use creativity to solve a math problem!

__Problem 11__

__Problem 12__

**Here's one point that preschool educators should be aware of when they teach Math!**

**Start teaching counting using**

**Concrete and Proportionate materials**

**Instead of using.....**

**Concrete but Non-proportionate materials**

**This way, we don't end up creating confusion in children as they learn and they can understand the concept of Tens and Ones clearly too!**
