    • Jimmy’s Peanut Farm Math concepts based on jimmy carter’s peanut farm
      • Jimmy has a peanut farm in Plains, Georgia.
      • Peanuts grow in pods. The pod is also known as the hard shell we have to break off to get to the edible part of the peanut. SEEDS ARE WHAT WE FIND INSIDE THE PODS. WE EAT THE SEEDS OF PEANUTS.
      The tan shells are called pods. The red oval-shaped pieces are known as seeds.
      • Go ahead and pull out a piece of paper so you can work out the problems! You must show your work, but you can solve the problems any way you wish.
      • 1. Jimmy picked 37 peanuts today. Martin just picked 14. How many peanuts do they have all together?
      • 2. Mary has 28 peanuts. Tom takes away 19 peanuts. How many peanuts does Mary have now?
      • 3. If Jackie has 5 peanut pods, and there are 3 seeds in each pod, how many seeds does Jackie have?
      • 4. James, Mary, and Tom are equally dividing a can of peanuts. If there are 15 peanuts in the can, how many peanuts will each person get?
      • Jimmy grew 30 peanuts. 5 peanut pods have 1 seed in each pod. 10 peanut pods have 2 seeds in each pod. Another 10 peanut pods have 3 seeds in each pod. 5 more peanut pods have 4 seeds in each pod. How many seeds are there in all?
      There is no “quick” way to solve this problem. Think carefully and show all your work!
    • Hints for solving the problems
      • If you’re still having a hard time figuring out how to solve these problems:
      • Addition
      • Subtraction
      • Repeated addition (also known as multiplication!)
      • Repeated subtraction (also known as division!)
      • (bonus) figure it out on your own! You can do this! 
