Lunar New Year, 2017

Year of the Fire Rooster

Lunar New Year begins on Saturday, January 28th. This will be the year of the Fire Rooster.  The year name is a combination of 10 Heavenly Stems and 12 Earthly Branches creating a sequence of year names that eventually repeat.

Students explore the least common multiple of two cycles without ever hearing the term LCM.  They become a little more aware of Chinese culture and the major significance of this annual event, while they “do the math”.


CCSS: 6.NS.4, 7.SP.8, S-CP
