Who says dead old guys can't be fun? Leonardo Fibonacci wrote the first math book so "regular" people could understand math (they called it arithmetic back then). He introduced the mathematical sequence, which is now called the Fibonacci sequence, to the general population. It's pretty fascinating...take a look!
So take a look around you, the world is full of the Fibonacci pattern. If you find something interesting take a picture or bring it in and we can try to test it!

In our last video lesson I asked the students to send me an email including why they like flipped learning. Below are their responses:
5A Students say...
"What I like more of the flipped learning videos is that is very flexible because you can do it every time and everywhere you want to remember something of the last lesson or you can study too so that is what I like more from the flipped learning videos."
"I really like looking at the videos you make with the Prezi because it is more fun than just hearing you. Also because I can go back and check the meaning of words. For example, magnitude."
"I like flipped learning because we can watch the video how much times we want."
"My favorite part of flipped learning is that you could just go at your pace and not make other people wait and start talking and you could just go on if you understood everything. Also, I like the fact that you could just see the part you did not understand as many times as you want."
"The thing that I like the most is that we see things that we are going to learn in the next day of school, just to warm up."
"My favorite thing in flipped learning is that we don't just get a worksheet for homework and just doing it, instead its more easy to see the video and learn new staff."
"I like that we do our homework in class and we do our work at home."
"I like the idea of flipping schoolwork and homework, and watching a video instead of actually listening to the teacher, because when you don't understand, you would have to ask your teacher about it, and it would disturb the class. With flipped learning, we can just go back to the part we didn't understand and just watch it again!"
"My favorite thing about flipped learning is that you can view the videos as many times as you want, and that if somebody does not get it, and you got it you don't have to listen to the teacher saying the same thing."
"I´m loving everything in flipped learning because I don´t like writing because my hand hurts and I don´t forget sheets of homework, so for my that's better and that's what I like about Flipped learning."
