### Calendar Math: May!

Wow! I can't believe that it's nearly the end of the school year! Sorry for the delay in getting May's Calendar Math spot up and running on the blog.

Besides the observations, predictions, and confirmed outcomes of yours regarding Calendar Math, here are some other questions to think/write about this month:
Calendar Questions
1. What polygons appear in the Calendar pattern this month?
2. Why is a square a rhombus?
3. Why isn't a circle a polygon?
Daily Depositor
1. How much money will we have by the end of May?
2. How much more do we need to reach \$2,000,000?
How much is a million?
1. An elephant eats about 300 pounds of food every day. How long will it take that elephant to eat one million pounds of food?
2. How many ten-dollar bills would it take to equal \$1,000,000?
3. The distance from Los Angeles, California to Atlanta, Georgia is about 2,000 miles. How many times would you have to make this trip to equal 1,000,000?

Please make sure you specify in your post if you are talking about the Daily Depositor, Calendar, Coin Counter, Counting Tape, or Graph. Also, if you are working on a bonus questions, make sure you tell which question you are answering. Enjoy!

Class Participation Reminder: As always, everyone should post at least once during the course of the month. Earn end of the year extra credit by posting more than one thoughtful, well organized post.

There is a pattern of it first changing the shape then the color changed 2 times and then the shape changed again.

I think the next shape will be a small triangle.

Each shape has at least 3 different kinds of different shapes that could be picked.

I think that the pattern will start all over in complete different shapes.

I think that the shapes that are not blue are going up by two.

Calender question #3

A circle is not a polygon because is does not have straight lines to make angles. Polygons have straight lines, not rounded ones.

I think the next shape will be a bigger shape.
