The 5th graders are studying angles. Their challenge is to find a 5-letter word that has the highest value when you use the following key:

acute angles are worth 6 cents

obtuse angles are worth 8 cents

right angles are worth 5 cents

vertical lines are worth 3 cents

horizontal lines are worth 4 cents

The students must use the alphabet as printed on the handout they received in school today.

A florist buys roses at $0.50 apiece and sells them for $1.00 apiece. If there are no other expenses, how many roses must be sold in order to make a profit of $400? How did you figure that out?

Email me your answer for bonus points. Deadline is 11/17/2009 at 8:00 PM.

The 5th grade medical clinics will be getting their first patients Monday, November 16.

The students will be given code cards. These cards will describe the patient, the symptoms, and the diagnosis. The students in the clinic will research the problem and answer the accompanying questions so that they can restore health to the patient.

They will present their findings during Grand Rounds (I guess I have been watching Grey’s Anatomy too much). This presentation requires a presentation board and an oral presentation.

I’m looking forward to Grand Rounds.
