Are you smarter than a 4th grader?

Cassie and a friend have partnered up to work on a science project. I'm not 100% clear on what the requirements are for it, but her task was to write 5 math questions for part of the "Wheel of Fortune" type game. She spent some time searching online for some questions, but ended up writing all but #1 herself. She tells me she and her partner already wrote 5 science questions for the wheel; she didn't have them here at home for me to post (sorry ANGELA!!!)

Anyway----wanna play with the math questions??? ;0)

#1) Do mathematicians know who invented multiplication?

#2) A heptagon is a shape with how many sides?

#3) How many factor pairs are there for the number 24?

#4) If 8 x 7 = 56, what would the p mean in p x 7 = 56?

#5) If 6 people have 1 1/2 apples, how much apple would each person get in order to share equally?

Answers to be posted Wednesday night just so you can feel good about yourselves :0)

I think I know them all, not the individual on #1 but the 'people'
good questions.

Heptagon is seven I think.

Factor pairs??? 4 (if you aren't counting reversing the numbers)


Apples = 1/4

Question #1.. probably some dead Greek

Did I pass??? ;o)
