Even math tutors love sea turtles. What’s not to love about these beautiful creatures that live 50 years or more and can travel upwards of 12,000 miles during their lifetimes? Another amazing fact about sea turtles is that, according to the World Wildlife Organization, “In a single nesting season, females lay between two and six clutches of eggs, each containing 65 to 180 eggs.” Furthermore, sea turtles have been swimming around the earth’s oceans for 110 MILLION years, although they are now on the endangered species list due to human fishing practices.

While it’s hard to top the “awww!” factor of a sea turtle, baby sea turtles are even more adorable. Can you solve today’s word problem challenge about sea turtles and their babies? Use your multiplication and division skills to find the answer. When you're ready, look below to check your solution against ours.

Question: A baby green sea turtle weighs 4 ounces. A fully grown green sea turtle weighs 350 pounds. How many times the weight of a baby sea turtle is the fully grown green sea turtle?

 

Solution: A pound is 16 ounces, so 16 ÷ 4 = 4 baby sea turtles weigh a pound. Since 4 babies weigh the same as each pound of fully grown turtle, that means that the whole fully grown turtle weighs as much as 350 × 4 = 1,400 baby turtles. It’s 1,400 times the weight of a baby sea turtle.

Humans need water regularly. We are supposed to drink about 8 glasses of water a day, and we can only go about 4 days (give or take) without water. So it’s pretty incredible to learn that camels can go for MONTHS without drinking water. Wow!

Remember how much fun it was to play connect the dots, creating pictures that seemed to “appear” from nowhere? We do! And we’re celebrating Halloween with wickedly wonderful connect-the-dot activities for elementary school children to enjoy while practicing math. You see, a Halloween witch cast an “invisibility spell” on our mascots, Ace and Addie. They need help to solve the math problems and make them “reappear” so they can go trick-or-treating!
