Mini Golf 2006-08-17
From Sarah:
I am a sixth grade teacher in Minnesota. I want to have my students explore mini golf and calculate the reflections and angles so that they can figure out how to hit a hole in one. I know that my daughter had various problems like this in eighth grade geometry, but I can't seem to find any internet activities of the appropriate level.

A sequence of transformations 2005-01-03
From Abraham:
Please go to this web site and look at number 31.


That is the New York state education web site. Can you tell me if my answer would be marked correct? My answer was Transformation of 4,-3 (T 4,-3) followed by a reflection in the x-axis.If I graphed the question and wrote that, would I get full credit

From Cheryl:
I am trying to help my 8th grade son with Transformations - use of patttern blocks. He has to trace a figure and reflect it across the x-axis, which I can do, but then it indicates include ordered pairs - that confuses me.

The three jugs problem 1999-09-02
From Kent Lane:
I wonder if you could help me figure out this secondary Discrete Math Problem. I cannot figure out where this comes from.

Here's the question:

You have three containers. Container 1 is a three (3) liter container. Container 2 is a five (5) liter container. Container 3 is an eight (8) liter container that is full of liquid. The goal is to get 4 liters in one of the containers.

Stipulations: There are no marks on the containers to measure out the liquid.

All you know is that 1 is 3 l., 2 is 5 l., and 3 is 8 l. full of liquid.
