“There are a whole lot of things in this world of ours you haven't even started wondering about yet.” ―Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach
There’s a great big world out there to discover, and we’re going to need MATH to help us understand it! This is why it’s important to learn foundational math skills and fit in a little bit of math practice every day. This week’s word problem challenge will help you workout your elementary math skills with a little bit of division, subtraction, and even some weights conversion, all wrapped up in a quick and fun math activity!
Go ahead and put on your thinking cap and solve this challenge. And be sure to come back tomorrow to find the solution.
Challenge: Eight friends each eat a pound of peach each day. If they’re eating a giant peach that weighs 8 tons and the pit of the peach weighs half a ton, then how many days will it take for the friends to eat the whole peach?
Summer is just around the corner. Do you know what your kids will be doing? While kids may dream of days filled with swimming, ice cream, and too much screen time, parents know that a little structure goes a long way towards keeping kids motivated, happy, and safe from the academic “summer slide.”
“There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.” -Pythagoras
Math and music go hand in hand, even when you’re solving practical, real life math problems
