Math + Online Learning:
It's 'The Mother Lode'
Today's Snack: Yes, that's spelled right. A "lode" in mining is a
rich supply of valuable metal in the middle of rock. It's kind of a like a big
vein in the human body. When a miner "strikes the mother lode," it means big
bucks! Well, today's featured website is like a "mother lode" of online math
activities. So to symbolize that, take a spoonful of peanut butter and blob it
into an individually-packaged serving of chocolate pudding. Stir just a little.
Then eat. When you hit that peanut butter taste, what are you going to say? "I
HIT THE MOTHER LODE!!!!"
