To Accumulate a Rate — Integrate!

Teaching High School Mathematics

Magically Delicious


I think this is the first time my first grader has ever had Lucky Charms. He got himself a bowl and was eating at the table. I left the room and came back to this. I wasn’t even upset about the milk all over the table. A couple questions followed:

Me: which marshmallow do you have the most of?

Gabe: the gold pot, rainbows and green hats. They all have 1,2,3,4,5. 1,2,3,4,5. 1,2,3,4,5.

Me: what if someone said there where more gold pots? Why would they think that?

Gabe: it’s taller.

Me: why?

Gabe: the gold ones are bigger, but there is not more.

Breakfast Math!
