This week's POW:   

Marcia is getting ready to plant a flower garden.  She wants to design a garden that will provide the greatest area for planting.  These are her choices:

       A circular garden with a radius of 8 feet.

       A rectangular garden with a length of 28 feet and a width of 7 feet.

1.    Draw a diagram of each of these designs and label the dimensions. 

2.    Calculate the area of each design.  Which garden should Marcia plant?  Show your work and label the answers accurately.   

 3.    If the materials needed to make the garden cost $1.25 per square foot, how much will it cost to build the garden?

 POW due May 18th:  In Exercises 1–4, use the following information. A 16-inch cheese pizza costs $10. Each extra topping costs $0.75. You have $14 to spend on a pizza.

1. Write and solve an inequality to represent the number of toppings t you can order. 2. What is the maximum number of toppings you can order? 3. What information did you not need? 4. If you need $1 to tip the delivery driver, what is the maximum number of toppings you can order?

 

 No POW due May 4th or May 11th!

POW:  April 26th: Write each phrase as an expression and state what the expression represents.

    2.  In Vienna, were more of the high and low temperatures above or below 0C? Justify your answer using a vertical number line.

 

    3.  Use the number lines in Exercises 1 and 2 to identify any days in which the temperatures were opposites in each city. Explain how you found your answers.

 

    4.  For each city, plot the data in a coordinate plane. Let x be the daily high temperature and let y be the daily low temperature.

 

    5.  Find two ordered pairs for Vienna whose coordinates differ only by signs. What do you notice about the locations of the points in relation to the axes?

 

    6.  In which quadrant are there no points plotted for either city? Explain why this occurs.

 

POW:  April 13th












 

The numbers of sailboats and motorboats in a bay are shown.

        

 

         a.   Write the ratio of motorboats to sailboats in three ways. Explain what the ratios mean.

 

         b.   Four additional motorboats enter the bay. How many additional sailboats must also enter the bay for the ratio to remain the same?

 

 

    2.  The ratio of the number of galleons to the number of galleys in the Spanish Armada was 5 : 1. What missing information could be used to find the total number of galleons and galleys in the Spanish Armada? Explain.
