Cameron & The Mutant Pancake

When we were typing up maths word problems, Cameron typed up the weirdest word problem anyone in the class has ever seen! This was it:

A mutant pancake had 38 ray guns and a portal shot out 41 more right in front of him, so how many ray guns can he use on disgusting human mouths?

Many of us agree that this is the strangest word problem in all of the (about) five pages of word problems we have. Hopefully, Cameron will write more strange word problems like this one about the adventures of the mutant pancake. Perhaps he'll even make a comic about it...

When we read this we imagined some amazing pictures in our heads... that's one of the best things about reading good ideas! They get you thinking!

We'd like to know what YOU see in your head when YOU read this word problem!! Soo... SHOW US!!! Make a picture that shows what you think about
when you read Cameron's idea and SEND IT TO US!! We can't WAIT to see what you come up with and we promise to make a blog post to show off all the ideas that come in!

Click here to e-mail us your ideas!

G'day Mr Hall and team,
Thank you so much for allowing your students to take part in the student blogging challenge.

I hope both you and your students get something out of the challenge - they can do the blogging or commenting challenge or both if they wish. The challenges I set can be done in any order or miss one if on holidays etc.

There are no true 'winners' as everyone who takes part gets something out of it, but I will probably ask each teacher to nominate a couple of students who they feel have made the most improvement or the best global connections during the challenge.
