From Alana:
I just began student teaching in a 5th grade math class and found that the students play 24 in class, a game that I used to play in elementary school. The students choose a card which shows 4 numbers and then have to use any combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to reach 24. There was one card that we found that seems to have all of us stumped. The four numbers are 9, 8, 7 and 2. Can you figure out how to make 24 with those? Thanks so much for your help!

The repetition of doing many straight forward problems 2002-10-16
From Dan:
I am the father of a very bright 9 year old girl. She is very interested in math and she grasps concepts very quickly. I am concerned that she may become bored with the repetition of doing many straight forward problems. Her current math teacher has her working in a challenging math book and she is doing 3+ digit multiplication. She misses 2 or 3 out of ten of these problems due to simple addition errors. Should she continue to practice these problems until she can get them all correct? Or, should she move on?

A schedule for 24 golfers 2002-05-25
From John:
I am working on a schedule for 24 golfers. 6 groups of 4. I have 8 golf days (twice per week for a month).

Ideally, I would like to schedule all 24 golfers in 6 different groups of 4 on each day. Here is the catch.....no golfer in any group can be grouped togther more than once. Every group of 4 each day will have 4 new golfers that have never played together before. Is this possible?
