Day 50... Whiteboard Time!

In Intermediate Algebra, we've been working on word problems. We started out on Work Problems and now we're on Distance Problems. Today we worked on converting hours to minutes, which is always a struggle. For example, in this problem, Jason's time is 0.35 hours and I had the discussion with many students on whether that was 35 minutes or not. By the end of the hour, they were converting without a problem.. yay! :)

  1. I would love to know how that conversation went! I struggle with helping the students convert decimals to hours.
