Product Description
This ebook is a word problem that explores the idea of digging a hole to China. First, it points out that the tunnel would have to be started in Argentina and then it asks students to calculate speed, time, and distance through the earth to determine the latest time someone could enter the tunnel in Buenos Aires to make a 12:30 pm lunch reservation in Shanghai The book also explains that, in reality, there would be many other factors making it nearly impossible for any of this to happen.
