It's a two minute introduction to Newton's Nemesis!

### The Art

I'm working with a talented young artist at Columbus State University, Mr. Nathan Long, who is now working on Newton's Nemesis, No. 2.

When I was a child, I would search for hidden objects in my doctor's office copy of Highlights, and loved my mother's magazine, Dell's Puzzles & Word Games.  Now I get to make puzzles and games for kids!

## The Story

Theo started his first job -- watching a puppy named Newton. The only problem: Newton lived next to a strange woman in a creepy house at the end of the street.

What did he hear? She had a spell?

She needed a doggie bone?!?

Who was that woman named Ms. I. D. Vide?

Theo's precocious little sister might be a pest, but her 2nd grade division homework might just hold the answer to why you flip and multiply!

### More Activities

The story is only the first step to learning how to divide by fractions.

As the artwork is created, I am developing supplements such as worksheets, games and puzzles that reinforce the concepts in Newton's Nemesis.

### The Math

Newton's Nemesis is aligned to 5th Grade Common Core Standards for Mathematics, focusing primarily on understanding dividing with fractions. But since I love geometry, I had to include a few fun activities using quadrilaterals and the coordinate plane!

### Purchase the second printing of Newton's Nemesis (Part 1) No. 1

The first printing has sold out, but the second printing is now available.  It's twenty pages, mostly gray scale, on glossy paper.  I've only printed a small run because I am testing in 5th grade classrooms in December to January.

If you purchase one, please let me know how you use it to teach fractions!
