Math Monday: Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month started on September 15th and goes through until October 15th. The reason it starts mid-month is because Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15th; Mexico declared their independence on September 16th, and Chile on September 18th. This week we will study Hispanic Heritage.

-This is a great website for Hispanic American "numbers". Which can then be used for graphing or other math problems.

-Learn to count in Spanish (cero, uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez are the numbers 0-10). Older students can do math problems in Spanish (y means and, menos means subtract)

-Cooking is also a fun way to incorprate math. Here are some yummy Hispanic recipes to try:
Corn tortillas
Mango Shake
Fresh salsa
