Take the PAIN out of math part 2.1 (field trip 1)

What is “number base” and why does it matter?

Today, we are going on a field trip in time and space. The year is 2055, and scientists have figured out a way to create little delicious protein packages, resembling eggs. That’s right, chickens no longer do the job for us, they now live in wilderness preserves created just for creatures who previously lived on farms.

Why do we care? Well because we are visiting an egg factory, and if there were chickens there, my allergies would drive me craaaazy!
