“You know, you can think of almost everything as a math problem!”
This is one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books…The Math Curse by Jon Scieszka. On any given day, I will say this exact quote to my boys and make up a math problem to go along with what we’re doing. Check out the pictures below to see some example problems.
How can you spend your Math Minutes this week?
- Listen to/watch The Math Curse by clicking here. Several math problems are presented throughout the book. Leave a comment by answering one of the questions. In your comment, include the time in the video, the question that is being asked, and your answer.
- Pretend you are the character in the book and make up a new math problem for someone to solve. Type your problem in the comment section, but don’t type the answer. See if someone else can answer it correctly. Don’t forget to check back and see if they answered it correctly. If you try to answer someone else’s problem, make sure to put the name of the student who wrote the problem.
- Take a picture of something and write a math problem to go along with it. Send the picture to the EY coordinator at your building and we will post it on our Student Showcase Wiki. Check out Harrison’s problem and Emma’s problem and answer their questions by leaving a comment.
Remember when posting a comment, type your first name, grade, and school (i.e. Tyler, 5, Sunset). Do not publish your email.
