Triple Crown possibilities, 2015

Updated for 2017! [caption id="attachment_17810" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Victor Espinoza riding American Pharoah[/caption]

American Pharaoh was the first horse to win not only the Triple Crown but also the Breeder's Cup race = Grand Slam!  Never done before.

Involve your students in this soon-to-be event while reviewing fractions, calculating miles per hour and miles per minute of horse racing, and learning about the measures of “hands” and “furlongs”.

A lot of CCSS are addressed in this task.  This is a very "number operations" heavy lesson full of rational number operations and conversions, see CCSS below.
