In this challenging task, students will follow the Jefferson family to the Olympics and solve real world problems involving decimals. Students will have to find the cost of plane tickets, gas, the time it took the plane to travel per mile, and calculate and compare the time of a four person relay race. Furthermore, students will have to explain the steps they took and the strategies they used to solve several of the problems. This task can be used as an activity and/or assessment. It is great for formal or informal observations.
