Mind mover 1 to 7

  1. 1. Mind Mover #1<br />There are 9 apples and 4 bags. How can you put an odd number of apples in each of the bags?<br />Title: Mind Mover #1<br />Ideas: How did you try to solve it?<br />Answer: What is your final answer?<br />
  2. 2. Mind Mover #1 Solution<br />Tough one on the first day…<br />Because 0 is an even number it can’t be used.<br />If you sum 4 odd digits (any combination of 1, 3, 5, 7) they always give you an even number.<br />So you have to get creative…I heard some good solutions…bag inside bag, eating an apple, removing a bag, etc.<br />There is no one correct answer but there is definitely lots of ways to try!<br />
  3. 3. Mind Mover #2<br />What 3 numbers are represented the by the 3 letters in this subtraction problem?<br />Title<br />How did you solve the problem?<br />What were the values of the letters?<br />A B A<br />- C A<br /> A B<br />
  4. 4. Mind Movers #2 Solution<br />A B A<br />- C A<br /> A B<br />I know that B has to be zero…because any number subtracting itself is zero!<br />So then start guessing and checking with three digit numbers ex: 101, 202, etc.<br />Fill in what you know.<br />Get C to work<br />A=1 B= 0 and C=9<br />A 0 A<br />- C A<br /> A 0<br />
  5. 5. Mind Mover #3<br />A ball is dropped from a ladder 8 m high. It bounced up ½ the distance it fell each time. It bounced until it as it bounced UP to a height of 1 m. How many times had the ball bounced?<br />Title <br />Draw a diagram(s) to represent the question.<br />Solution<br />
  6. 6. Mind Mover #3 Solution<br />By drawing a picture you can clearly identify what half the height looks like for every bounce.<br />It would take three bounces for the ball to be caught at a height of one metre.<br />8 m<br />4m<br />4m<br />2m<br />2m<br />1m<br />Bounce #1<br />Bounce #3<br />Bounce #2<br />
  7. 7. Mind Mover #4<br />We are building a fence that requires fence posts every meter. If you need to fence in a yard that is 3m by 5m; how many fence posts will you need?<br />Title<br />How did you start this problem?<br />Did your thinking change in order to find a solution?<br />Solution<br />
  8. 8. Mind Mover #4 Solution<br />3m<br />You might think this is a super easy problem. 5m sides needs 5 posts <br />and 3m sides each need three posts<br />Anyone see a problem here?<br />We need posts on every corner for a fence!<br />5m<br />In total we need 16 posts in total!<br />
  9. 9. Mind Mover #5<br />If it takes 4 students 3 minutes to put up 3 badminton nets, how long will it take for 6 students to put up 3 badminton nets?<br />Title<br />Can you identify a pattern? <br />Did the pattern help you solve the question? If not how did you solve the question?<br />What is the solution?<br />
  10. 10. Mind Mover #5 Solution<br />It takes 4 students 1 minute per net.<br />So it would take 8 students 30 seconds per net<br />If I follow the pattern <br />4 = 60<br />8 = 30 <br />6 is half way between 4 and 8, so 45 seconds is between 60 and 30.<br />Therefore it would take 6 students 45seconds per net; and if there are 3 nets (3x45) is 135 seconds (2 minutes 15 seconds).<br />
  11. 11. Mind Mover #6<br />Add, subtract, multiply or divide all the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 to reach an answer of 10.<br />Title<br />How did you solve the problem?<br />Make sure you remember BEDMAS when doing your calculations.<br />Show your full solution!<br />
  12. 12. Mind Mover #6 Solution<br />Guess and check would be the most common method to solve this problem.<br />There are many solution here is just one!<br />
  13. 13. Mind Mover #7<br />A snail began to crawl out of a well which was 16 m deep. Each day the snail crawled 4 m up the side of the well, but at night the snail would slip back 1 m as he slept. How many days did it take to get out of the well?<br />Title<br />Draw a diagram<br />State your solution.<br />
  14. 14. Mind Mover #7 Solution<br />5 Days for the snail to make it to the top of the well<br />16m<br />Day 5<br />13m<br />12m<br />Day 4<br />10m<br />9m<br />Day 3<br />7m<br />6m<br />Day 2<br />4m<br />3m<br />Day 1<br />
