Real situation. Imagine that you are having a bath after a hard day of work. You have been in the bath for a while and the water is now a little chilly. You decide to add more water, only to realize that since your kids stayed home all day...school closed due to snow...They used up most of the hot water. Wait for it. You really want to stay in the tub. You ask one of your children to put on a pot of water to boil in a big pot. I want to figure out how much boiling water would be needed to make the water hot again? Whew! A lot of info. What would we need to figure out this problem? #mathintherealworld #mathteacher #mathwithnonumbers...yet. #DoKlevels
