Then I asked Heather how she can use what she learned in other ways:

I think this is a good way to show how estimation works and apples are not that messy like oranges would be. This was a great math lesson. I am Cortney in Dr. Strange EDM 310 you can check out my blog at

I think this is such a cute and fun way to make Math interesting! Incorporating fun things like food into Math makes it more interesting and fun! Such a great lesson!! I am Caroline in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class!!
