This awesomely hilarious activity consists of a short, fill-in-the-blank story requiring students to type numbers and equations into a standard calculator. It can be used as an introductory hook, or it could be used as typing practice for students who are not used to typing into a calculator. I have used this activity prior to standardized testing. It could also be used as a math center, as students can complete this independently.
(4 identical slips to be cut from one page-- save paper!)
WARNING: May cause uproarious laughter (OR eye-rolling and hidden snickers in older students). :-)
