# Wednesday Math

Sorry about missing last Friday’s Quick Writes and Monday’s book reviews.  We went on a family vacation.  We camped on Students Island on Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Oquossoc, Maine. We had fun swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, playing and relaxing together.  Here’s the view from our tent door.  I hope you’re having a wonderful summer too.

Here are some problems to solve.  Have fun!
