Some people ordered a pizza with 20 slices. Each person ate the same amount of slices. How many people ordered the pizza and how many slices did each person eat?
I was at the store when I saw they had headphones on sale for $2. Of course I had to scoop them up into my shopping cart! How many headphones do you think I bought and how much did I probably spend?
I actually took a course in college on how to play tennis! The summer I learned how to play a can of tennis balls cost about $10. Needless to say, I went through a lot of cans because I kept losing them when they went off of the tennis court. How many cans do you think I ended up buying that semester and how much did they cost me?
Four of my friends came over the other night. One of them is a master brownie baker! She cut the brownies so the 5 of us could eat the same amount. How many brownies were each of us able to eat? How many brownies did she cut in all?
As you know, I am frequently at Barnes and Noble ~ at least twice a week! During my recent visit there, I spent $24 on books. Because of my educator's discount, each book cost the same. How many books did I buy and how much did each book cost?
_ One of my favorite things to do is to watch baseball. Even though I am a Red Sox fan, it can get kinda boring watching it on TV. And it's not exactly easy to get tickets to see a Boston Red Sox game. So...when I can, I go to a New Britain Rock Cats game on bright sunshiny day. But, I never go alone. There are always plenty of family members who like to tag along. We often sit in the Reserved Section where it costs $6 for a child/senior & $8 for an adult. One time there were 15 of us that went! My singing god daughter and her brother were certainly there. But so was my adorable nephew (who will be turning 5 this week). And of course all of their parents were there! Uncharacteristically, my grandparents (who are in their 70's) went, too. There were other people there, too, but I don't remember how old they were at the time! (Maybe you can figure that out.) How much would it have cost for us to attend that game? My uncle is the one who paid, in cash, for the tickets. What bills would he have given to the cashier that would have given him back change? How much change did he get back? Challenge: What if we had sat in the Club Seats ($15) or MVP Seats ($18)? One of your teachers raises chinchillas and is one of the top breeders in the state. At any time they can have as many as 15 chinchillas and as few as 7. Chinchillas have special needs to help simulate their natural habitat. Below are just a few things that a chinchilla needs in a week to be comfy and cozy:
Geissler's helps support the local baseball teams. Each player on each team needs a batting helmet ($8), cleats ($9), glove ($6), team shirt ($4), and pants ($7). This year Geissler's can offer up to $400 to purchase the necessary gear.
I love my NOOK Color and was really excited when Mrs. McCarroll bought one for our classroom! She also gave us a $100.00 gift card so that we could buy NOOK Books! When buying books, it took me a couple of hours to do that because I wanted to get the most books for our money. While many of the books I got were free ☺, I did buy a great deal of books. The books I bought cost $3.00, $4.00, and $6.00 each. I bought more than 2 books for each price, but did not spend the entire $100.00!
As you know, Mr. P. just got married in Mexico. This weekend he is having a wedding party at a nice country club to celebrate with all of his friends and family. There will be favors on the table filled with little treats for people to bring home with them after the wedding. Mr. P. has a wedding budget and does not want to spend more than $500.00 on the favors. This includes the box and candies inside the boxes.
