Should we switch to base 12?

I had a crazy week, as always.  I wish I could tell you about my day on Friday because it was so funny, but it would just sound so wrong.  It gets so crazy that we always say...You can't make this stuff (a different word that starts with s) up! 

I am working on my next Lattice lesson and practice sheet.  Still working on my Geometry puzzles...grrr! 

Thought I'd leave you with some interesting video clips....

Should we switch to a Base Twelve Counting System?

You may have already seen this one....


  1. I just watched that with my mouth open...had no idea you could do that.

  2. Reagan - I've seen another method like this using place value but this blew my mind since the other method is not nearly as visual.
