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, Flora Murky Memos for teachers are posted every Wednesday.
