Our latest math problem evolved from BG's decision to blog the Easter Bunny.
BG initially asked the Easter Bunny “How many eggs are you going to get?” "Easter Bunny will you put candy in my egg?"
BG was very excited when Mr. Bunny responded, asking the question “How many eggs do you think I should get for each person?”
BG wrote him back letting him know that he thought 12 eggs would be great.
The Easter Bunny responded asking BG to show him how many 12 is. (Mr. Bunny has trouble remembering numbers!)
Our team jumped to the challenge of reminding Mr. Bunny how many 12 is, trying to be as efficient (mathematicians always try to be quick and efficient) as can be as they recorded their ideas.
These are some of the reminders created to help Mr. Bunny.
Mathematicians always want to show all of their work so students are encouraged to simply put an X through unwanted information rather that erasing or covering with 'magic tape'.
