What is the greatest number of sandwiches that Tom can buy? a. b. c. d. 5 8 11 18 This multiple-choice item is clearly designed to assess a student’s ability to identify the correct operation to solve a simple one-step word problem and, in this case, correctly ﬁnd a quotient. Note that to best assess this objective, the distracters represent, in rounded form, the quotient, difference, sum, and product of the two numbers in the problem.

Which number is different from the other two? In what ways? • Given a table with 221 , 5, and 11 2 , you can ask the same questions and then ask: What’s the sum?

Seconds? 25 ϫ 24 hours/day ϭ 464,598 hours 464,598 ϫ 60 minutes/hour ϭ 27,875,880 minutes 27,875,880 ϫ 60 seconds/minute ϭ 1,672,552,800 seconds And then the fun (and the real teaching) begins with questions and the ensuing discussion: • So what is the correct unit for the 28,935,285 that represents my actual age?
