We have done car math for as long as I can remember, whenever the mood strikes us. These little oral challenges encompass adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, fractions, critical thinking, and even algebra.
All the questions below were asked today, except the last two which I remembered being particularly amazed with correct answers about a year ago.
No pressure or expectation to get things right, but they nailed every question. I need to up my game!!
M had two pumpkin pies and gave you half of one. How much does he have left?
You had eight Spider-Men and gave one to A and one to B, how many left?
How much is four twos?
How much is three fours?
If you had two chickens and a cow, how many feet would there be?
If there were two cars, and one popped a tyre, how many tyres would be left?
If you chopped an apple in half, then each of those pieces in half, how many pieces would you have?
Count the seats in our car. If we had A and B come on a ride with us, how many empty seats would be left?
How much is two fives? And five twos?
If you needed fourteen Lego pieces to build a set but only had eight, how many more pieces do you need?
If you had twenty fish fingers and the two of you had two friends over, how many fish fingers would everyone get to make it even?
Who needs a curriculum. Not us. Ha.
