2 2
How many ways can the bunny hop 12 steps?
3 3

SUPER Challenge: 5 8
Can you make a REASONABLE estimate for the 6 13
number of ways the bunny can hop for 100
steps? Be sure to explain why you think your
answer is reasonable.

Polya stated the following:

I can understand the problem


I can devise a plan
I can carry out the plan
I can look back (reflect)
I can understand the problem
How did I get you to understand the problem?

What is the data?

What is the unknown?


What is the condition?
I can devise a plan
How did I get you to come up with a plan?

You used charts

You used patterns You used cubes and pictures to


to ensure all possible hops model the bunny's hops
I can carry out the plan

What happened when we tried to carry out


your plan last week?

The 12 step problem was too complicated!

So what did I have you guys do yesterday?


I can carry out the plan

We made the problem EASIER by changing the


data. Instead of 12 steps, we started with 1. Then what?

Then we kept going from the 1 step


problem up to the 6 step problem, and
discovered a PATTERN! That pattern
helped us find our SOLUTION!!
Hey cool! We did all of
this..except....

I can understand the problem


I can devise a plan
I can carry out the plan
I can look back (reflect)
Your job today:

Come up with a different type of bunny problem by changing the


condition or the data. You will be writing up your problem on
chart paper. Other groups will try to solve your problem! This will
help you reflect on what it means to change and expand on a
problem!

Checklist for Problem Making


Is the spelling and grammar correct?

When ALL of your groupmates read it out loud,


does the problem make sense?

Is the problem MATHEMATICALLY different


than the original bunny problem?
