I thought the classic homework problem was to convert an Arabic numeral into a 
Roman numeral. Bonus points for correctly converting any number above 12 and/or 
copyright year from any old movie. Most students have seen Roman numerals on 
clocks (1-12).

Maybe that's too hard for today's kids with digital clocks.
