A set of 5 open-ended problems (one for each day of the week) consisting of graphing in the xy coordinate plane and applying the concepts of perimeter and the Pythagorean Theorem. Can also be presented as an application of the distance formula for more advanced students. Modeled after the type of open-ended questions that appear on state standardized graduation tests. Can be used as a "do now" bell-ringer activity, anticipatory set, closure activity, extra-credit assignment or as a main lesson in and of itself. Comes with answer keys and a 4-point scoring rubric that's applicable to all 5 problems.
