Word Problem Wednesday: Financial Awareness for Kids

Aug 14, 2019

Today is financial awareness day! It’s never too early to start talking about money math with kids. The more comfortable they feel with the subject better! Financial conversations can start early and be fun and relevant by making it about things kids understand — like crayons! 

When you come into our math tutoring learning center we make sure to meet kids where they are in their math learning journey. Today we offer a word problem challenge that can help kids of any age and grade level practice their money math, addition, subtraction, and multiplication. 

Open the box and color yourself surprised at how much fun math can be! 


Question: Crayons come in boxes of 12. Each crayon costs 10¢. How much does a box of crayons cost?
