I need a highly creative copywriter to craft short COOL/SCARY/FUNNY scenarios of day to day events that look as if they happened naturally to the writer, that include a math calculation/concept. The best fit would be a writer with a strong sense of humor and/or drama that can write situations that kids will find amusing/scary/interesting/dramatic and at the same time relevant to their own life. The narratives should be are around issues that interest kids such as apps, games, books, movies, music, celebrities. The purpose is to enhance interest in learning math by crafting interesting/amusing situations around math challenges that kids in grades 4-8 will find relevant to their own world. WRITING GUIDELINES 1.Each situation ("item") must contain one or two paragraphs. the item will be grammatically correct free of any spelling error and be factually correct. 2.The item must be written in high quality, free flowing English that reads well. The style and voice of the item should be interesting, conversational, filled with everyday language and expressions used by american kids ages 10-17. 3.The geographic aspects of the article must be correct (USA) this includes Language and currency. 4.The math calculation/concept would be given and the content has to describe a situation that will make use of that calculation. The best would be to craft an event that seems as if it happened personally by the writer in which he used/needed that calculation. The key is to make the challenge look natural and not be forced. In other words, just write as if you are not trying to force the math aspect into the story but as if it blends in and the focus is on the event and not on the calculation. MANDATORY The reader has to feel as if its not around math at all. The narrative has to drag attention with something cool/funny/scary/dramatic. HOW TO APPLY 1. Check our website www.dimentor.com. You will find some examples of educational situations in the "Inspiring" section". These examples show math situations that we need to rewrite/improve according to the guidelines described above. 2. Please provide a sample(s) of your writing by re-writing one of those examples with these guidelines. Further specific details provided at the time of interview.
