Multiplication Doubles and the Chocolate Bar

CHERRYFIELD, ME — An EdGE student at D.W. Merritt Elementary School in Addison, ME. EdGE Assistant Director Isaac Marnik was asked, “What’s the back story to this photo? Why is this kid dressed in oversized clothes holding a chocolate bar?”

Isaac said, “It is a fun game called multiplication doubles. Students go around the circle rolling two dice and doing the multiplication problem on the dice. When someone gets doubles, they try putting on all the clothes and then open the chocolate bar before another student rolls doubles. When another student does roll doubles, the first student has to get the clothes off quickly, so the new student can try and get the candy bar open.”
