Leap Year Math

It is always better to teach a concept when it is in a meaningful time and place.  There is a lot of Math around leap years, and this is one question that I gave to my kids today and let them struggle with it.  It took the entire group pooling thier knowledge together to figure it out.

The next chance you get to teach this in a meaningful context will be 2016!
