Our new math problem of the week is:

The Disappearing Dollar

Three friends have a meal in a restaurant and they are charged $25.  They each chip in with a $10 bill and hand it to the waiter.  The waiter, though, isn't very good at math (like dividing the $5 change by 3), so he keeps $2 as a tip and hands each friend $1. 

Cells Anyone?

Armed with boxes of sidewalk chalk Mr. Hallam's Biology classes went outside of the school to draw cell structures. This is something that his classes do every year, and it gives his students a large canvas to show off what they have learned.
