Hello Warrior country! I'm Ron Coffey and I am the 6th grade Math teacher at NGS. My goal has always been to do whatever it takes to help each student reach their fullest potential!
"Figure" Me Out:
Number of years in education: 6 x 3
College degrees: Think of a number, double it, add six, divide it in half, subtract the number you started with!
Years married to the NGS 7th grade science teacher: (10-3) x (8/2)
Number of children: Think of a number, multiply it by 3, add 6, divide by 3, subtract the number you started with!
Number of pets: 18/9
Birth month: It's is an odd number, but if you take a letter away from it, it becomes even.
Birthday: An apartment building manager has hired you to paint the apartment number on the door for each apartment. There are 100 apartments in the building. How many times will you paint the number 8?
Age: (Good luck!) In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every year, the patch doubles in size! It takes 48 years for the patch to cover the entire lake. Mr. Coffey loves to fish in that lake. He once caught 35 + 25 - 59 catfish in a single day! How long would it take for the lily pad patch to cover half the lake?
