PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Open-ended Math projects challenge students to come up with different solutions to problems - there is no one right answer.

In this project students must help Farmer Macrae plant his new field in such a way as to make the maximum profit.
Students must choose which crops to plant, decide what area of the field each crop should cover, work out how much it will cost to plant the field, what the yield of each crop will be and what profit Farmer Macrae will make.

Concepts covered include: addition, subtraction and multiplication of money and finding area. Includes standard and metric measurements. Extension activities are suggested. Critical thinking is required!

My class loves open-ended projects and are always asking for more. I hope you enjoy them too. There are several other types of open-ended project available in the store. If you are unfamiliar with this type of learning you may want to look at the freebie project Terrific Tortoise to see what an open-ended project looks like.
