Girl Scout Cookie Math!
Somoas, Do-Si-Dos, Lemon Chalet Cremes, Tagalongs, Trefoils... Oh, and the Thin Mints. We're up to our ears in them. And eating ourselves free!
Mom here is once again the Troop Cookie Mother, which makes me de facto Cookie Dad/Cookie Truck Driver/Cookie Counter, all positions of responsibility that pay mighty handsomely. In cookies, anyway. But, I'm also never one to let a math problem go to waste, so I've had both girls hanging around as we're doing the cookie count outs, figuring out how many cases and individual boxes of each scrumptious variety we need to parcel out to each of my younger daughter's precociously marketing savvy scout mates. All told, 118 cases, thanks for asking.
In the spirit of Cookie Delivery Week, I baked up a few worksheets of division word problems with remainders that feature the cookie case sorting problem...
Please pardon the crumbs and enjoy them, along with a few peanut butter Tagalongs!
