April 29 on Earthquake

Rushi was rescued after being trapped for 82 hours in the recent earthquake in Nepal.

How many days is 82 hours?

Notes for Parents | Encourage mental strategies. Instead of doing long division for 82 / 24, get students to think of 82 as 48 and 34 and 34 as 24 and 10. From there it is easy to see that 82 hours is 3 days and 10 hours. 

When practicing computations, make sure they acquire number sense. What I described is one way to develop number sense.
