Maths and emails

Today we (the Grade 4s) did very big sums and sent emails to our Mums and Dads about it.

Dear Mom and Dad

Today I worked out a multiplication sum with 4 digits all by my self on the board.
This was the sum: 2456 x 1554 = 3816624. It was very hard but it was also fun. I had a little help from Miss Tyler and I am very proud of myself.

Bye!

Hello Mom and Dad

Today I worked out a multiplication sum with 4 digits all by my self on the board.
My first try was wrong. We used a calculator to check. Then i tried again and it was right!
5291 x 4589 = 24 280 399
It was hard but fun!

Love Seth "The Maths Wizard" Beukes

Dear Mom and Dad

Today I worked out a multiplication sum with 2 digits all by my self on the board.
I guessed the answer before I worked it out and I was right! Miss Tyler-Smith says I must have magical powers I am the only one who can guess the answer. Now everyone in my class is asking to guess their answers. :)

Bye!
