Learning FUN Ideas

It all adds up to FUN with these activity ideas:

    1. How Much Do I Need? Help learners see the relevance of multiplication when figuring areas. You want to paint a wall? What area do you need to cover? Figure the area (length x height), using the Multiplication posters in this set as reference for how to multiply. 8 feet x 10 feet = 96 square feet!

    2. How much? How many? Jump start putting math into practice with the these additional ideas.
      • How much gas do we need to get to Grandma's house 100 miles away if we drive 25 miles on one gallon? [100 / 25 = 4]
      • How many eggs do I need if I want to double the recipe? / How many cookies can I make if I double the recipe?
      • How many $0.50 cups of lemonade do I need to sell to reach my goal of raising $50?
      • How many chickens does it take to lay 12 dozen eggs, if each chicken lays two eggs?
      • If I buy a gift, how much do I have left? Do I have enough money to buy...?
      • How long will it take to travel to the moon?
    3. Are We There Yet? With math and some basic information, kids can figure how long it will take until you're "there"! First, note the distance you need to travel. It could be biking two miles to a friend's, walking 800 meters around the track, or taking a drive 70 miles to grandma's house. Then, estimate your speed: 6 minutes to bike a mile, for example. Finally calculate the time total travel time: 6 minutes per mile times 2 miles = 12 minutes to bike to a friend's two miles away.

    4. Birthday Math – Did you know that about 10 million people in the world share your birthday? Use basic math skills with this fun birthday trick:
      1. Have participants write down the number for their birth month. For example, January is 1, February as 2, and so on. In this example, we'll use the month of May = 5, and date = 31.
      2. Add the number for the month and the next highest number together: 5 + 6 = 11.
      3. Multiply the sum by 5: 11 x 5 = 55
      4. Next, multiply the sum by 10: 55 x 10 = 550
      5. Add their date of birth: 550 + 31 = 581
      6. Subtract 50, and you will have the student's date of birth: 531 (5/31 or May 31st)
