# Planning a Trip RLP

This assessment asks students to help plan a trip around Europe to locations with different time zones. Students must analyze different timetables, with different formatting, to figure out a route for all the places on the trip that minimizes the amount of airtime..

# Create Your Own Number System

This assessment is meant to be used at the end of a unit that teaches the concept of place value, number base, and expanded notation from an exploration of ancient number systems, such as the Egyptian, Roman, Mayan, and Babylonian systems. Students are asked to create their own unique number system within a given set of loose parameters. The final product is a poster that explains the number system in such a way that classmates can understand how it works by reading each others' poster.

# Cube Might Guy and the Hollows

In this assessment, the cube version of Naruto’s Might Guy (マイト・ガイ), called Cube Might Guy, needs some help exploring some patters! Students are asked to use isometric dot grids to draw hollow square frames, rectangular hollow frames, hollow cubes, and hollow cubic frames. Based on those drawings, students will find, describe, and verify those patterns.

# Odd and Even Factors

A factor, also called a divisor, of a natural number is a number that divides the number without any remainder. For example, the factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, and 8, because when 8 is divided by either of these numbers, there is no remainder. In this assessment, students investigate positive factors of natural numbers, exploring patterns in the number of factors and the number of odd vs. the number of even factors.

# Patterns in Staircases

In this assessment, students investigate the number of cubes required to make staircases of different dimensions and types when they are drawn on an isometric grid. Starting with guided questions, they are to draw staircases and recognize patterns in the number of cubes required to make them. Then, as the staircases become more complex, so do the patterns to find the number of cubes required for them.
