Fatal Fractions - A Murky Memo

A Murky Memo...

To: Fourth-Grade Teachers
From: Flora Fustabustus, District Math Guru
RE: Handy Tip

Student interest goes up when you personalize math lessons. Try using your students' names in word problems. 

Here's an example:

Vanessa went to the Halloween Carnival. Inside the Haunted House she saw a Vampire that scared her half to death. Next, she saw a Zombie that scared her three-eights to death. If Vanessa met a Werewolf, what fraction of a scare would it take to finish off poor Vanessa?

Be Creative and have fun,
