The Lion in Math Class

Tom’s dad asked him “ How was math today? ”
Tom said “A lion interrupted our class”
How did the lion get into your class?
We used an array to draw one.
We also drew aliens, a caterpillar,
And we drew a dog.
The CN Tower, a house a jet
And a skateboard.
What! …………That’s not math!

Use your imagination, Dad!
Use your imagination, Dad!
Use your imagination, Dad!
What! …………That’s math!

 3 rectangular arrays for 12.
1 x 12, 2 x 6,  3 x 4.
Arrays are multiplication rectangles.
And we learned about factors.
1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 are the factors of 12.
They divide evenly.

I don’t see
Any aliens or jets.
What!........... That’s not math

Use your imagination, Dad!
Use your imagination, Dad!
Use your imagination, Dad!
What! …………That’s math!

Here’s a 12 x 1 array. What does it look like?
It looks like a pencil.
Here’s a 2 x 6 array. What does it look like?
It looks like a PSP.
Here’s a 4 x 3 array. What does it look like?
It looks like a TV.
We mixed math and art, do you get it.
Don’t you think … That’s cool!
Don’t you think ……That’s cool!

We used our imagination, Dad!
We used our imagination, Dad!
We used our imagination, Dad!

Don’t you think ……That’s cool!
