Virtual Math Club

Tomorrow our district is shutting down while the teachers go on a one day walk out. As a result there will be no math club session.  But that's no problem - we have an app for that. Well actually its just email but I'm going virtual for the week and sending out two problems for the kids. Hopefully I'll hear back that some of them gave them a try.

The first is a continuation of the decoding work we did last week. This one is a long division problem with missing digits. I think this should flow fairly easily from the strategies everyone was employing.

The second is from a new site I found and explores some more of the pentagon/pentagram geometry. The full question is a bit hard for the knowledge level we have but the more basic question: find the sum of the acute angles in a regular pentagram is really good practice.
