Hurray for the Marathon! Few athletic events inspire as much as the great marathons of the world, and what better great marathon than the NYC Marathon! The first Sunday in November, runners take to the five boroughs of New York to run 26.2 miles through all 5 boroughs. Celebrate the 42nd running of the NYC Marathon, and myriad teaching opportunities such a great sporting event offers your students!
This packet includes 21 high interest story problems (many of them based on real-life statistics about the New York City Marathon). This packet includes problems on time, money, and basic addition as well as very complicated division and multiplication problems. There is something for every fourth - sixth grade mathematician in this packet!
Enjoy, and happy running and happy Math!
