It takes the students through all of the steps, and can be worked on individually as an extension exercise or as a whole class to add interest to your math workshop. The level of difficulty can be adjusted by allowing students to use calculators, or by asking students to show all work.
The length of the project can be adjusted by excluding or including some of the steps. The full project can serve as an excellent supplement to a 4th through 6th grade class for several months if completed to the fullest.
