Half to Death - A Murky Memo

Handy Tip...

To: Fourth-Grade Teachers
From: Flora Frubb, District Math Guru

Student interest goes up when you personalize math lessons. Try using your students' names in word problems. Here's an example:

Marcos went to the beach. In the water he saw a stingray that scared him half to death. Next, he saw a jellyfish that scared him three-eights to death. If Marcos sees a shark, what fraction of a scare would it take to finish off poor Marcos?

Get creative and have fun,
