Friday fun: a two-fer

face_question_markBeen so long since I put up one of these but it’s not because I haven’t run across some fun things to do; rather, it’s been a lack of time.  So how about two of them?

First up:  Back to School! This is a sample of questions on the 2013 New York State math tests, two each from grades 3 through 8. I’m happy to report that, as rusty as my math skills are – we accounting types mainly use basic math – I managed to get all 12 correct.

Do you like jigsaw puzzles? I do, so this Slate one on gerrymandered districts was right up my alley.  Iowa is easy – wait til you get to the others.

A chaser: this Christina Bianco video is a hoot!

Happy Friday!
