Counting All Presidents and Their Vices

Today we celebrate Washington's Birthday. George Washington was the first president of our United States. Not many people can name all of the presidents of the United States. And it's quite a bit more difficult to name the Vice-Presidents. A few of them actually became president. Do you recall which ones moved into that office?

In Excel Math, we help students learn elementary math concepts they can apply to their lives as they grow up.

How many of the United States presidents can you name? In case you need a refresher, we've listed their names along with links to the website www.whitehouse.gov with more information about each of them:

If you click on a Vice President’s name who did not also serve as president you will be taken to the page for the President they served. 

Only two U.S. Presidents are buried at Arlington Cemetery. Can you name them?
