Mathematics – multiplication word problems
Reading, and understanding how to use multiplication to solve problems is a very useful skill. Try reading and solving these, using pictures, words and numbers to work out the answers:
1. There are 46 birds perched on the branches of a tree. How many feet are there on the branches?
2. I see 115 cows grazing in the pasture. How many legs do I see?
3. There are 397 butterflies. Each butterfly has 12 black dots and 17 yellow dots. How many black dots are there in all?
4. At the zoo, I see 35 elephants and 48 tigers. How many legs do I see?

Unit of Inquiry: Continuing to explore artists, messages, art techniques
Take a look at the work below. Is this art? What might the artist’s message be?
Create a piece of art using found objects.
It should be no smaller than 20cm x 20cm and no larger than 30 cm x 30cm.
It must be a perfect square.
You should consider your message before collecting objects. For example, your message might be:
- My year in Grade 3
- How I feel about nature
You should consider using color to support your message. Is your message hopeful, reflective or sad? Which colors will best help you share this message?
You should carefully photograph your work, and blog about it on Easyblog.
