## “I Feel So Accomplished!” – Problem Solving, Noah’s Ark

- Give them all their own copy of the problem. (And a sheet of animals to cut out if they wanted it). Noah’s Arc PS
- Let them read it silently
- Let one of them read it aloud while other students read along silently.
- Let them work silently for a few minutes.
- Let them work together.
- Discuss solutions.

Some students let the animals equal animal values.

- E (elephant) ------> 12pounds ( I know an elephant isn't 12 pounds in real life. The reason
- B (bear) ------> 6pounds I did this was because using small numbers will definitely
- K (kangaroo) -----> 4pounds make it easier.
- Z (zebra) ------> 2pounds
- S (seal) ------> 1 pound

however this was a complete waist of my time /\ | should have been waste

## A Problem "Noah's Ark"

Noah was on the ark for approximately 370 days, assuming a lunar calendar of 360 days. Noah first entered the ark on day 17 of the second month and left the ark on day 27 of the second month the following year.

Noah took at most 100 years to build the ark, being first mentioned in the Bible at 500 years old and stepping on the ark at 600 years old. The exact time it took Noah to build the ark is not specifically mentioned in the Bible.

The living place of Noah varies among religions, but he appears to have lived in the Middle East, around the region of Mesopotamia or Turkey. According to some biblical accounts, Noah lived a solitary life or lived among his fellow tribal m...

“I feel so accomplished!” is what I overheard a student say after doing the Noah's Ark problem solving activity in my class today.

The next thing I did was to try solving the problem starting from deck five. ... After finding out that two seals wasn't the answer

3. Handshakes. 4. Climbing Stairs. 5. Noah's Ark. I'll explain why I love each one and I'll share some ideas for strategies that students use to solve them.

Problem Solving: Noah's Ark. Name_______________________. Mr. Noah wants his Ark to sail along on an even keel. The ark is divided down the middle,.

Algebra wrapped up solving systems by graphing today and moved on to substitution ... I didn't give students enough time to chew on the problem.

The second problem I introduced was Fawn Nguyen's Noah's Ark problem. ... of course and students had two different answers at the end.

I see five variabls and four equations. This makes me wonder if there is a single solution. I'll come back to this ;). Log in or register to

Noah's Ark was related to algebraic thinking as to solve the problem you had to basically simplify and evaluate most of the equations so

The day 2 task is to solve this animal puzzle using whatever method makes sense to you. You'll see in the next lesson how it leads us to

Mr. Noah would like his ark to sit perfectly level in the water. You need to figure out how many seals(6) balance with 3 zebras.
