I'll explore this one ... may save it for our unit on matrices when we are solving for 3 variables.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-25727866100350341392013-09-07T12:30:47.793-05:002013-09-07T12:30:47.793-05:00I am doing the lego opener (I think it is Fawn'...I am doing the lego opener (I think it is Fawn's) with the lego furniture to do linear programming. And, I am doing the oreo question - not is it double stuffed, but which has more calories the wafer or the filling if you know a regular oreo is 3 cookies and 160 calories and a double stuff is 2 cookies and 140 calories (assuming double stuff means double filling)(but does it?)JFairbankshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09111997601925361204noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-55900607849071910792013-09-07T12:27:49.565-05:002013-09-07T12:27:49.565-05:00I am going to do a candy lab with 3 unknowns but y...I am going to do a candy lab with 3 unknowns but you could do two. I don't know how to attach it here but I found it on someone's blog. It is kisses, 3 musketeers, and peppermint patties. You need a scale. You put some combination into brown bags and staple them shut. You have to include one hint on the bag. I am going to label the bags A, B, C, etc so I can keep track. They also need to be told how many total are in the bag. Then, they do a quantity equation, a weight equation (need scale), and your hint equation to figure out how many of each kind.JFairbankshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09111997601925361204noreply@blogger.com
