I've transcribed the word problem that I found in this article. Isn't it great that such a young math student created this problem? I posted it on our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages, and I've included my solution below.

We'll be back next week with a calculus based problem- this one was fun, but I know many of our followers crave more difficult math challenges. So stay tuned!

Does anyone have another math problem based on the Star Wars world? Is anyone else extremely excited to see the cross-guarded lightsaber from the trailers in action? Let us know in the comments!

ReplyDeleteHello. This looks great. Do you have any more of these?

ReplyDeleteGood morning. We have plenty more Problems of the Week! We post a new one every Tuesday, and every Thursday we post an Advanced Knowledge Problem of the Week. You can find these by searching Problem of the Week in the search bar or by click on the Problem of the Week label.

DeleteI think we should make the most of the star wars event to motivate students to learn more and more math. Success to all of us. Merry Christmas. from Brazil (write-me edmirterra@ufgd.edu.br)
