Puppy Update: We found good loving homes for 7 of the puppies so we only have 5 puppies left. Here is the math problem to represent the puppy count as of today.
We started out with 12 puppies OR We found homes for 7 puppies
We gave away 7 puppies Plus the 5 puppies we have left
How many puppies do we have left? How many puppies did we start with?
- 7 + 5
= 5 = 12
There is math in many activities of everyday living. And there is more than one way to solve a math problem. Shopping, measuring for recipes, counting baseball cards, adding the days until school starts, and looking at the clock to see how long it is before dinner are all ways to use math and numbers. Where else do you use math, numbers, or counting in your daily routine?
