Several people enjoyed the April calendar and asked if there would be a May version. Unfortunately, my homeschool co-op classes are out until next fall, so I don’t have enough kids to make up problems for me. But if your children would like to send in some puzzles, I will be glad to put another calendar together. If we get enough participation, we could have calendars every month for the rest of the year!
How to Contribute
- Have your student(s) make up expressions that equal numbers from 1-31.
- You don’t have to do every number; just find the ones you can think of.
- You may make more than one expression for some numbers, if you like. After all, there are many months in a year, and they each have plenty of days!
- You can use arithmetic, algebra, geometry, story problems, etc. — but remember that it has to fit inside a calendar square. Don’t be wordy.
- Scan your problems or type them in an email. Send to:
- Please include the student’s first name and last initial, so I can give credit where it is due. If you are sending problems from more than one student, please mark clearly which problems go with which names.
