Cookie thief or hand model, to further accurate multiplication?
12-APR-2006

Cookie thief or hand model, to further accurate multiplication?

Fingers are too dirty to model for Parents Magazine. So cookie thief is the more likely premise. Homework was driving her nuts, so I made some quick bake cookies. Fuel to estimate and do lattice multiplication.





Math homework is becoming impossible. My first strategy is to get the calculator, though I know the objective is to teach thinking and organizational skills.





If the train leaves the station and Jane is baking cookies for seven children, how many cookies will each child get if the train is traveling at 85 miles per hour and gets to the station at 7:35 P.M and all the children are waiting?





If all of the children have adequately washed their hands, how many fingers will actually touch the plate of cookies? Will there be any cookies left for the baker?
