Review work from last few days.

Extra Credit Assignment: Take notes in class then write one or more answers (based on the discussion) to at least one of these questions. A good job on this can substitute for a missed homework assignment. The discussions we have in class will be more than just an answer to the basic question. Be sure to talk about some of the ideas that came up while answering.

Q1: You are planning a graduation party, how many people can come?

Q2: You have $50. What’s a possible combination of money that you could have?

Q3: You are in Las Vegas. You have $10. You have 10 minutes. How much money is it possible to make in a casino given the 10 minute time limit?

**Monday October 1**

Have you done everything? Check your list against the “perfect list” at the bottom of the page here (THIS LINK DOES NOT YET INCLUDE THE THREE REQUIRED LINKS FROM YESTERDAY)

**On a separate sheet of paper**, write a thorough explanation of how you got your answer and if also mention if any part of the problem needs more explanation. For instance, in #1 they probably should say “be played in total” because someone might think the problem is asking how games a single team will play. UNIQUE ANSWERS worth a lot – if you and your friend turn in the same answer it is worth very little!

Simply Write a 1 by YOUR FIRST ONE, a 2 by YOUR SECOND ONE, and so on. If you have 22 warm-ups it should be number 1,2,3…22. If you have 30 warm-ups, it should be numbered 1,2,3…30. Beside the very last one (THURSDAY) Write TOTAL: and the number of warm-ups. 34 or more warm-ups is 100%. They are worth 3 points each. Every one over 34 is worth 1 point of extra credit.
