Estimating Quotients

Hello parents,

Your children, and my students, applied math skills to very real life situations today. They figured out how long, in M&Ms, the Mississippi River is. They’re challenging you to do the same.

**Facts:**

The Mississippi River is about 4,000 km long.

An M&M is about 1 centimeter long.

There are 100 centimeters in a meter, and 1,000 meters in a kilometer.

Estimate how many M&Ms it would take to measure the length of the Mississippi River.

Have Fun!
