Decimal Game

Check out this decimal game. We played it a couple of different ways. In the first game we played so that the first person to add their scores to 1 were the winner. In the second, we played so that the last person to get to 1 was the winner. If you use three dice, you will be able to use thousandths too. Have some fun learning about decimals.

Running Math

Students in Room 22 run daily as part of an exercise training program. On Monday they ran 3.6 km, on Tuesday 1.2 km, on Wednesday 2.4 km, on Thursday 3.6 km and on Friday 1.17km. How many kilometers did they run this week?  If they kept up this training schedule, how many months before they  would have ran a total distance of 500 km?
Remember to share your thinking, not just an answer.

Walking Maths

Frank either walks to school and catches the bus home or catches the bus to school and walks home.  Both ways, it takes him 1 hour to travel to and from school.  If he were to walk to and from school, it would take him 1 1/2 hours.  If Frank were to catch the bus to and from school, how long would it take him?

**Remember that the thinking that you share is more important than the answer.
