Tasty Doughnut Math for All Ages!

Sometimes you have to re-frame the day in a school context!!  We don't have a Krispy Kreme nearby, but my kids call the one near my parents' home "the mothership."  The Krispy Kreme in Winston-Salem is the original store...and it's one of our favorite sweet treats!
In addition to being super yummy (and just terrible for you!), doughnuts are a great way to get some living math into your school day.  They're also an injection of FUN into a long, wintry school month!

Does the end of the school year seem miles away? You can make it there, and we can help you. Finish the last quarter strong and finish it well by using code FINISHWELL to secure a Quarterly Membership rate of $45!  (Quarterly Membership reg. $59.97.)

  • Take the multiplication a step further, with bigger numbers
  • Work further with fractions (if each person gets 2 1/2 doughnuts, how many do we need?)
  • Work on estimating and multiplying
