### Word Problem of the Day

## The weekend is here again.... and so is the next word problem of the day for this upcoming Monday. Have your students chew on this one for awhile before explaining the solution. This will help your students form useful questions that you can in-turn use to gain insight into their thinking and provide information on where to focus your teaching efforts. Your students must be comfortable working with fractions in order to fully understand this one. This is the time to reinforce fractions to your students. Being comfortable with fractions as well as fully understanding fractions is a must in mathematics.
