## POW # 4

POW# 4

Process

The process that I used was I made a number line from one and up, and I had to find the highest possible combination that would not work.

The possible numbers of scores of three and five.

Red=No FG=5 TD=3

Green=Yes

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,

Conclusion

I found out that the highest impossible score for the free thinking scoring system was the number seven. The highest impossible number is seven because the numbers three and five can add up to every single number past seven. Then with the three field goal, and four touch down the highest impossible number is five. Sam with the (2,4),(5,6),(9,11) as well. A pattern that I found was that when you are working with two even numbers there are endless possibility of matches. So this means for the two and four there is no solution.

Extension

FG=4 TD=5

Red=No

Green=Yes

(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30)

The highest impossible number is eleven. A way that you can tell if it will go on forever is if both of the numbers are even. All of the highest impossible numbers are odd. The lower the two numbers you have will give you a lower imposible number. If they are a multiple of each other there will not be a highest impossible number.

Evaluation

I learned from this POW that in a real foot ball game if they were to score with the numbers two and four they would have a difficult time finishing the game because their scores would always be a tie. The project itself was designed really well and I can’t think of any changes needed. I found this POW enjoyable and I hope to do more of them.

## Pow # 6

Process: When I began this pow I tried to do the spider web method to find out all the possible people they could call by using a phone tree. But after forty or so minutes I abandon that course because of hand cramps and lack of belief that It would eventually lead me to my answer. But then I realized after what felt like hours of staring at the piece of paper that the number of people they could call every thirty minutes would double every thirty minutes. So I grabbed my calculator, and doubled the number over and over again until I reached the childrens limit of sixty minutes on the phone.

Solution:

2=3 min

4=6 min

8=9 min

16=12 min

32=15 min

64=18 min

128=21 min

256=24 min

512=27 min

1024=30 min

2048=33 min

4096=36 min

8192=39 min

16384=42 min

32768=45 min

65536=48 min

131072=51 min

262144=54 min

524288=57 min

1048576=60 min

The equation is 2 to the x power.

Extension: Charlotte’s parents have realized that one hour of time of the phone was still not a healthy amount. Because of this they limited her time on the phone to twenty five minutes. Because of Charlotte’s lack of time she now has only one minute to make the necessary calls to make sure every that everyone gets the news.

Evaluation: When I started this POW right off the bat I started to over think it by making a massive spider web chart trying to make sense out of it. When I started making the chart I didn't expect to find anything I was just trying to find something to do. After crumpling up the chart in frustration, I glanced at the paper and I realized that the amount of people who heard about the news doubled each time. For this POW I never expected it to be something as simple as the number doubling each time. You could change things just for the sake of changing things like what we did with the extension but the problem is fine how it is. This one I found to be more enjoyable than the other ones mainly because the story was funny to think about. This one was driving me crazy for a little while because I could not find the answer, but it wasn't really all that complex I just didn't believe it would be something as simple as the number doubling.

Pow 10:

POW 10 Teddy Rodd

Process:

The first step that I took in solving this problem was I worked on the mini camel question. In the mini question this distance that the camel had to travel to get to the market was fifteen miles and the camel could only carry fithteen bananas. And the total amount of harvested bananas was forty five. First I brought all the bananas to the three mile mark and then to the eight mile mark and then off to the market.

Solution:

Large camel can get five hundred bananas to the market.

Mini camel can get eight bananas to the market.

Extention:

There are five people that are presently living on the moon each of them eat three packets of space every day. The two people that fly the space shuttle need to eat three packet of the space food that they are shipping to the moon. The space shuttle is capable of carrying thirty packets of space food. It takes a total of two days to get to the moon and back. How many packets of space food can they get to the moon?

Evaluation:

This POW is the hardest one that we have done yet, I thought that it was the final one because of it’s difficulty until I was told otherwise. One thing that I enjoyed about this POW was that it gave me chance to draw stuff like camels and palm trees. This one I think was little bit two hard and a do not think we should not do another one off this level until we do our final POW.

Solution:

2=3 min

4=6 min

8=9 min

16=12 min

32=15 min
