I have had a learner try this activity and he enjoyed it and found it a good learning experience for math.  However, we did notice that there is a couple of discrpencies: 1.  The calendar says March 9 is a Sunday.  The chart says March 9 is a Tuesday.  The name of the day should be checked on the task to avoid confusion. 2. The Calendars show 2 months.  If you count the weeks, (March 9 to April 30,  there are only 8 Mondays, when the vet comes out to the farm, but the answer key has 9 quoted.  Not sure how you got 9 weeks.  We think the answer should be closer to $1190.00 for task 5 as a result.  Would love a ruling on this one.
