### Math Challenge March 14

The memorial to Albert Einstein is located at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The bronze figure, weighs approximately 4 tons, and is 12 feet tall. There are 3 feet in a yard. How many yards tall is the statue?

(For younger children, use counters: Take 12 counters and put them together to show the 12 feet, separate them into piles of 3, how many piles are there?)

Send answers to kellys3ps@sbcglobal.net

Parents may help, but try to let your child figure it out on their own.

Weekly winner wins a Smencil. Monthly winner wins a $20 Barnes and Noble gift certificate!

Good Luck!
