# MATH

• WELCOME TO MATH!

Today we will begin working with 'Arrangements and Combinations.'

I'd like you to open the document of shapes I've attached at the of BOTTOM of this page. It contains two squares, two circles, two triangles, and two rectangles.
If you'd like, you can print this document and then cut out the shapes.
IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO PRINT THEM ... You are also welcome to simply draw your own shapes, two of each as you see in the document, and then cut them out. (They do NOT need to be perfect; we simply need to be able to tell what shape they are.)

►Now, line up a square, a circle, and a triangle on the table in front of you.
►Next, go to a piece of paper and record the order in which you have them placed.
For example:   POSITION 1                   POSITION 2             POSITION 3
square                             circle                            triangle
square                             triangle                         circle

►Please line them up again, but in a different combination of positions. Please record their positions on your paper, as in the example above.
(NOTE: You can leave one of the shapes in the same column as before.)

CHALLENGE: There are six possible combinations. Can you find and list them all?

When you have finished, you have created an Organized List! Congratulations!

I LOVE MATH!!! THIS IS FUN!!!

Now, please go to page 242 of your textbook and complete problems 1 and 2.
On page 243, please complete problem #4.

Next, take a look at the TREE DIAGRAM instructions on p. 243.
Following what they have demonstrated in the 'Tree Diagrams' section,
make a Tree Diagram AND an organized list for problems #5 and #6.

TERRIFIC! PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR WORK :)
