Word Problem Wednesday: Firefly Math
Nov 6, 2019
Nothing “flashy” here, but we have a great word problem challenge that we think you’ll love! Don’t worry that the problem will “bug” you, it’s so much fun that it will “light” up your day! At our math learning centers for kids, we make math fun so students can learn in a way that makes sense to them.
Today’s challenge highlights multiplication, lowest common denominator, giving students an opportunity to practice and strengthen these and other elementary level math skills. Check out the question below and let your curiosity take control. Give yourself time to work out the answer, and be sure to come back tomorrow to compare your solution to ours.
Question: One firefly blinks its light once every 8 seconds. Another firefly blinks its light every 9 seconds. If both fireflies blink at the same time, how long will it be before they synchronize blinks again?
