The Race is On

We've tried to capture a few "moments" in the lesson in the following brief clips. Note that Ms. Barney planned a few twists to the plot. (... it seems that speed isn't the only element critical to the race...direction is also a critical concern!)

 

 

Please watch the following three clips to get a feel for the lesson.

Monkey Questions

  • Round 1: At a rate of 8 miles per hour, the monkey ran for ¼ hour. How far did he go?

  • Round 3: The monkey went in reverse 3.5 miles at 10.5 miles per hour. How long did it take?
  • Round 4: The monkey turned on the jets in the right direction 3 miles for 12 minutes. What was the monkey's rate of speed?
  • Round 5: The monkey ran for 6 minutes at 10 miles per hour. At what mile marker is he standing?
