Rule of three


Hello, hello!
Now that we know about direct proportionality, we're learning the rule of three in Mathematics.
The rule of three is an operation that helps us quickly solve both direct and inverse proportion word problems. In order to use the rule of three, we need three values; two that are proportional to one another, and a third. From there, we will figure out the fourth value.

Direct rule of three

We will place the 3 values (which we will call “a”, “b”, and “c”) and the unknown value that we want to figure out (“x”) in a table. Next, we will apply the following formula: 
Rule of three
Direct rule of three

Examples of rule of three

Inverse rule of three

We will place the 3 values and the unknown value in the table, just as we did in the previous case, but we will apply a different formula:

Inverse rule of three formula
Inverse rule of three formula

Eras of History

Hello, hello!
In Social Science we're starting a project on the main eras of History.
As you know, historians have organised the events that happened in the past and classified them into different periods so we can understand them better. Each period has special characteristics and they end when there is a fundamental event that produces a major change.

To our culture, the following are the main eras of Prehistory and History and the main events that made each period change:

The main ages of Prehistory and History
The main ages of Prehistory and History
To learn more about these periods, we're going to work in pairs on different topics. The themes are the following:
  • Paleolithic
  • Neolithic
  • Metal ages
  • Mesopotamia *
  • Egypt *
  • Ancient Greece *
  • Ancient Rome *
  • Middle ages
  • Modern ages
The methodology we're going to use is Project-Based Learning. In this type of tasks, we need to follow a specific plan which is the following:
  1. Distribute the topics in groups.
  2. Inform ourselves on the important elements of our task.
  3. Compile relevant information and pictures about the different topics.
  4. Elaborate a digital presentation showing key aspects of the period or civilisation.
  5. Exhibit and explain the resulting presentation to the class.
  6. Reflect on the activity, our work and our learning.
