Mario: Mrs. McKnight would a unicorn with a dead bunny on his horn quailfy as scary?
Me: *sigh* Yes Mario, yes it would.
Story Problem:A company offers a payment plan for any item that costs over $200. You must make a $100 down payment and the rest must be split into three payments. What was the original cost if the payments were $250?
One students accidentally added the down payment into the three payments. This in turn made her over pay $200. She was great and let me use her mistake as an example. I told her that as the store owner I would keep her money because she didn't know how to do the math, her problem, not mine. Then the class started to discuss what I could buy with her money, a Kindle Fire, toys for Miles, lots of food, clothes, etc. We finally decided that we could buy my 9 month old child his own set of POWERWHEELS! Lol. It was great to imagine.
