Valentine Math

Categories: Elementary Program / Holidays / Practical Life / WMS News

 

The question: How many Valentines will be exchanged between the 60 elementary students?  These students knew that they could figure it out using bead bars.  They almost had worked it out by helping each other…just a little guidance from the teacher and they worked it out:. 60×59 (because we assume most do not make a Valentine for themselves) comes out to 3,540!
