by Brittney Lee

In a recent unit of study, 7th grade honors math classes learned about appreciating math in every day life. They learned about how their bodies fit the golden ratio, and about all the different patterns in Pascal's triangle.

As part of their hands-on application, students used math to create art.  They picked a number and colored in the multiples of that number to see the pattern within a triangle.

Word “Value”

Sydney is told that the “value” of a word is determined by multiplying the letter-values of each letter in the word, and letter values are assigned such that A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, … , Y = 25, Z = 26.  Example:  the value of the word JULY = 63,000 because 10 x 21 x 12 x 25 = 63,000).
