Quick write: words, words, words!

On Day 5 and 6 this week (Friday and Monday), we’ll be putting words in sentences and making sure that we use correct conventions. Conventions are things like punctuation, capital letters and spelling. I’ve chosen three words this week that are both math terms and terms that can be used in other, non-mathematical ways. (If you don’t already have one, get a writing notebook from Mr. Creighton or Ms. Khanna).

Depending on what grade you are in, please write at least one grammatically correct sentence that uses your word:

  • Sixth graders, please use divide in an interesting way.
  • Seventh graders, please use negative in an interesting way.
  • Eighth graders, please use constant in an interesting way.

Those who want a challenge can write try to use all three words in one or more sentences! It would be great to see some of you post your sentences on the blog.
