Division 10 is competing with Division 11 to find $100 words. Students are asked to calculate the value of various words. Each letter is assigned the value of its position in the alphabet, as follows:
A = 1
B = 2
C = 3
and so on until...
Z = 26
Pretending every point is a dollar, students try to find $100 words. This is great practice in adding long lists of numbers.
So, for example, CAB = 6, and ENCYCLOPEDIA = 112.
The competition ends on September 30th!
