Product Description

Here's another mathematics investigation straight out of the SamizdatMath laboratory. Yes, the same place which brought you "How to Hack Your Burrito," "What's the Best Way to Fit a 15' Fishing Pole in a 10' Box?" AND "WTF is Survivor Bias and Why Should I Care About It?" now brings you a complete investigation into the age old problem "what's the fastest way to cook 3 steaks in a pan that only holds 2 at a time?" This is a problem that has been circulating around, and it has a fun solution, but why stop there? Why not do the same with 4, 5, 6, X number of steaks? What if I used a larger pan that could hold 3, 4, 5, or Y number of steaks?"

This investigation covers a lot of ground, but the important thing to remember is this: it is an investigation. That means that your students are going to be making lots of mistakes, following incorrect leads, jumping to conclusions, and all that other delicious stuff that goes into really getting your hands dirty when doing mathematics. If you like your math "neat" and "clean," then you're probably shopping in the wrong place.

Comes complete with teaching tips, answer key, and lots and lots of hard questions!
