<p>Once kids start to learn area of plane figures such as rectangles and squares, area of a circle is introduced too. Most kids in grade six start to learn area of two dimensional shapes.</p>
<p>To find the <a href="http://areacircle.com/" target="_blank">area of a circle</a> students need to know the basic terminology of circles first. The definition of a circle, the center, radius, diameter and the circumference are the most basic terms attached to circle geometry.</p>
<p><a href="http://areacircle.com" target="_blank"></a><a target="_self" href="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1978606806?profile=original"><img width="750" class="align-center" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1978606806?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024" height="370" width="535"/></a></p>
<p>Once students know the basic about a circle, the next thing is the constant "pi". We can define "pi" as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Note that independent of the size of the circle this ratio remains same and is equal to 3.14 approximately.</p>
<p>The <a href="http://areacircle.com/basics-about-area-of-a-circle.html" target="_blank">area of a circle basics</a> is calculate using a formula. This formula is given below:</p>
<p> A = pi x radius x radius</p>
<p>Where pi = 3.14 and radius of the circle can be measured or might be given in the problem.</p>Skip Counting Skills For Kidstag:edupln.ning.com,2012-03-08:4241570:BlogPost:1677312012-03-08T07:54:50.000ZKuleep Kaurhttp://edupln.ning.com/profile/KuleepKaur

<p>Skip counting is the counting numbers in groups or bundles. For example, counting the numbers in bundles of twos. There are many many examples of such counting in everyday life.</p>

<p></p>
<p>For example; human body is the best example of skip counting. One person got two hands, two persons got four hands and so on. Same is true with other parts of body such as arms, legs, eyes, ears and fingers.</p>

<p>Some more examples of <em><a href="http://www.grade2mathworksheets.com/skip-counting/skip-counting-worksheets.html" target="_blank"><strong>skip counting</strong></a></em> may include bicycle wheels or car wheels can be used to introduce skip counting by 2's and 4's respectively.</p>

<p></p>
<p>Now there are many benefits of skip counting and few of them are discussed below:</p>
<p></p>
<p>1. By learning skip counting kids start to realize the concept of <a href="http://www.grade2mathworksheets.com/place-value-worksheets/place-value-grade2.html" target="_blank">place value</a> and get ready to learn bigger numbers.</p>
<p></p>
<p>2. Basic skip counting is actually times tables. For example, the skip counting by 2's is actually the 2 times table and similarly by learning skip counting by 3's, 4's and 5's, kids master these times tables.</p>
<p></p>
<p>3. Skip counting can help kids count coins. <span class="st">The ability to count coins will come much easier to a student who has mastered <em>skip counting</em> already</span>.</p>
<p></p>
<p>When they have a number of nickels, dimes and quarters then they can use skip counting to add these coins.</p>
<p></p>
<p>4. By learning skip counting kids develop mental math skills to do simple arithmetic such as addition and subtraction.</p>
<p></p>
<p>5. Even and odd numbers are skip counting by 2's so kids can write bigger even or odd numbers by using skip counting by 2's.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Finally, we can conclude that <a href="http://coedpages.uncc.edu/abpolly/math/core/unpacking/unpacked-2nd-051811.pdf" target="_blank">skip counting</a> is the key arithmetic skill and elementary grade students must learn it and master it to perform excellent in math.</p>
<p>Print skip counting worksheets from online websites for your kids or take them online to play <a href="http://investigations.terc.edu/library/Games_23.cfm" target="_blank">skip counting games</a>.</p>

<p>Triangular prism is a three dimensional geometric shape. There are many <a href="http://www.triangular-prism.com" target="_blank">examples of triangular prisms</a> in our daily lives, such as a tent or a wedge.</p>
<p>It got its name because of its two triangular faces (act as bases of the prism). The rest of the three faces are rectangular in shape.</p>

<p>Triangular prism is a three dimensional geometric shape. There are many <a href="http://www.triangular-prism.com" target="_blank">examples of triangular prisms</a> in our daily lives, such as a tent or a wedge.</p>

<p><a href="http://www.triangular-prism.com/surface-area-of-a-triangular-prism/triangular-prism-surface-area.html" target="_blank">To find its surface area</a>, the easiest method is to find the area of each of its face and add all five measurements. To do the task kids can draw a net of the prism.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><a target="_self" href="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1978607380?profile=original"><img width="600" class="align-center" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1978607380?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024" width="600"/></a></p>
<p>The volume of the prism is always the area of any of the triangular face and multiplied by the distance between two triangular faces.</p>
<p>Hence the knowledge to find area of a triangle is the key to find the surface area and volume of a triangular prism.</p>Adding fractions with unlike denominatorstag:edupln.ning.com,2011-08-20:4241570:BlogPost:1295892011-08-20T20:30:00.000ZKuleep Kaurhttp://edupln.ning.com/profile/KuleepKaur

<p> </p>
<p>The key is to know the greatest common factor of two or more numbers and <a href="http://www.fractionsworksheets.ca/equivalent_fractions/equivalent_fractions.html" target="_blank">equivalent fractions</a>, once kids know these two skills, then they can add any type of fractions easily. Most of the kids in grade seven encounter with adding fractions with unlike denominators. Till then they must have understood the basic fractional concepts such as adding fractions with like denominators, equivalent fractions, reducing fractions into lowest terms and last but not least the least common multiple (lcm) and greatest common factor (gcf).</p>
