This week’s task is to research two more Mexican festivals/celebration days. There are many to choose from. Write down as many facts as you can into your Home Learning book about each one.

    • Evan, for number 6, look for things that are common to find the difference. If you subtract the height of the cube and cylinder from the height of the cube and hexagonal Prism youd find the difference between the Prism and cylinder. With that information you could find the size of the Prism and cylinder then the cube.
      For number 7 think about the area of each triangle first not the fraction. The small triangle is 2 square units in area. Remember 1/2 L x W. Look at the area of each of the shaded triangles in comparison to the total area. Give them a go.
