New unit of measurement

I just had a brilliant idea for a new unit of measurement: the “covid.” And how big is the covid? You guessed it, six feet long.

“Hey Bob, I just hit a jump shot from two covids away.”

“That is great Mary. Did I tell you my new livingroom is four covids in length?”

Ad nauseum.

1 covid = 6 feet

Useful Information

compoFrom their youngest days, students will be exposed to a plethora of information, some good, some bad, some pointless.

And then there is information that is so important, so useful, that children are exposed to it all day, every day. Yet they never really notice.  I am refering to the Useful Information charts that appear on the backs or insides of composition notebooks.

Although most of the tables and charts show  math-related data —  Multiplication Tables, Metric Conversion Tables, etc., — there are some differences between charts and occasionally some truly obscure gold.

In this six-part series, I will compare different Useful Information charts and try to find unique features and otherwise uncommon nuggets of info.
