Task 11
Explain why different objects have different colors?
Solution:
The white light is a mixture of lights of different colors. An object is seen as white if it
reflects all of the components of white light, and the object is seen as red when it
reflects the red light and absorbs other colors.
Task 12
Use the Pilgrim and a prism to refract the white light into other several colors. List
colors you see passing continuously one into the other in the spectrum of white light.
Which color of light is dispersed quicker and which is the slowest?
Solution:
White light is a mixture of these colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
The red light is dispersed quickly, whereas the violet light is dispersed slowly.
Task 13
Observe the colored blocks through a red light filter. What have you noticed?
Solution:
Only red light is dispersed by a light filter and all the other colors are absorbed. The
colored blocks which are of different color than red will be seen as black when we
look at them through the red light filter.

Task 13
Brimful skips and garbage containers pose increasing problems with their disposal.
Each of us produces approximately 300 kg of garbage per year. How many 8 ton
cars do we have to use to dispose of annual collection of garbage from our town?
Solution:
Number of citizens living in Zawiercie: 51 860
300 * 51860= 15558000kg the number of kilograms of garbage collected in town
15558000:8=1944750
Answer: We need 1944750 cars to remove the garbage from the town.
Task 14
Composting the wastes produced in a single household reduces the overall amount
of rubbish. Approximately 1/4 of waste generated in the household and the garden is
compostable. How many kg of waste is composted in the household with a family of
five? What percentage of all wastes from Zawiercie constitute the garbage of this
family? Present the result as exponential notation.

Solution:
The amount of garbage collected in the household of five
300*5=1500kg
1500:4=375kg- the amount of wastes able to be composted
1500-375=1125kg
Calculate what percentage of all wastes from Zawiercie constitute the garbage of the
given family.
(1125: 15558000)*100%=0,007231%=7,231*10-3 %.

Task 15
In a town, solid waste removal costs 10 zloty per person in case of segregated
wastes, otherwise the amount for removal is 15 zloty per person. There has been a
15% increase of charge for that service in June. How much money will a family of five
pay for removal of waste in both cases? How much money will they save if they
segregate wastes?

Solution:
The bill for segregating wastes will amount:
0,15*10=1,5
1,5*5=7,5
10*5=50
50+7,5=57,50z
The bill for non-segregated wastes
0,15*15=2,25
2,25*5=11,25
15*5=75
75+11,25=86,25z
86,25-57,50=28,75z
Answer: The family will save 28,75 zloty per month.

7*2=14kg
Answer: The heaviest garbage pile weighs 14kg.

Task 20
The waste removal company hires 6 men more than women, and for every 4 women
there are 5 more men. How many employees does the company employ?
Solution:
x - number of women
x+6- number of men
Use an equation
4(x+6)=5x
4x+24=5x

5x-4x=24
x=24
24+24+6=54

Task 21
The Pilgrim's task is to sow 1.5 hectare of land in the shape of a rectangle with an
ecologic type of grain. How long will it take it to sow this area? Using a mock-up of
1,5m x 2m make the appropriate measurements and answer the question.
Solution:
It takes the Pilgrim 180 seconds to sow the whole area with seed - those are the
measured results.
The mock-up's area is
1,5*2=3m2
1,5 ha=15000m2
15000m2: 3 m2=5000
240*5000=900000 seconds = 15000 minutes = 250 hours
Answer: The Pilgrim will sow the area in 250 hours.

Task 22
The Strongman consumes 248 kcal when marching for 60 minutes. How many cans
of GREEN-UP drink would it have to drink to travel a distance of 100 cm? Show the
relationship between joules and calories. Find the required data on the can.
Solution:
By reading the information from the can we know that 114kcal=477kJ.
114cal=477J
We derive the relationship between calories and Joules dividing by 114 and we get
1cal= 477:114J
1cal=4,184J.
We know that

60min - 248kcal
1min - 248:60kcal=4,13kcal
1 s - 0,0688(3)kcal
4,2 s- 0,2891 kcal
From the previous task we know that the Strongman travels 100 cm in 4,2 seconds
so it Leeds 0,2891 kcal to accomplish this task.
How much drink will the Strongman need to drink?
0,2891kcal:114kcal=0,0254.
Answer: The Strongan will drink 0,0254 of the cans volume.

Task 23

To find:
V avg =?
Solution:
V avg = s:t
Divide distance by time to find out what the average velocity is.

Task 25

Summary:
Students will work in groups of three to four. Each team will time various robots
progression at four points on a straight-lined course (see figure 1) and will use the
time data to create X/Y tables with equations and a coordinate graph to show and
compare slopes.
Outline:
Organize the times each robot passed the checkpoints and the finish line in a
data table for each robot tested.
Write and use an equation to calculate the times when the robots would cross
checkpoints on a longer course.
Use the data table to construct a coordinate graph showing the slopes for
each robot timed.
Activity A:
A. Organize the time information from each of the robots drag race in a data table
(see Sample Chart and Data Worksheet). Each group will develop an equation that
will be used to calculate times at other checkpoints along the same course as well as
along the length of a longer course.
Student groups will use a piece of graph paper to create a coordinate graph to plot
the slopes for each robot drag race.
Students will plot the ordered pairs for each race by using a different color for each
robot.
