Awesome Math Students Race Against the Clock!

Students at Van Buren elementary ran/walked 25 ft. yesterday during class.  They had to use division to figure out how many feet per second they were moving. 
First they did it as fast as they could, then they did it as slow as they could.   Our fastest times were 12 1/2 feet per second.  Our slowest time was 0.38 feet per second.
Now they have to relate this to our new Chapter :  When are We Going to Get There?  (miles per hour)
