Memorial Day 2023


 This Monday, Americans will celebrate Memorial Day.  Who are we honoring?  How did the holiday come about?  Isn't Memorial Day usually on May 30th? Students learn a little about the history of the holiday, analyze the possibilities and patterns for when it is celebrated and make observations about the incredible numbers of deaths that have been caused by war. While trying to make observations about the numbers, they can't help but appreciate the terrible cost of war and the gift that those that serve in the military have given to us and to our country.

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, our data with a pie chart, and solutions.

Flag Art - A little ratio art might be a fun way to get ready for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday.  In this activity students measure; create whole number ratios for the official U.S. flag; decide how our artistic flags will be different from the official flag; make stars from regular pentagons, and finally create a flag design in honor of Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is also a day of sales

Which sale should you choose? (2021) - Students decide if these two sales are the same. If they are not the same, which is better? How would you explain this to someone?

Which car should I buy - hybrid or electric? (2021) - Students create equations for finding the break-even points of these vehicles by mileage and years of ownership.  They then work with systems of equations to find the number of years or number of miles where the cost of these cars are the same.

Taking two discounts off (2022) - Advertisers want your business.  They often use repeated discounts to make you think you are getting stuff for free.  Be aware!
