Adventures of Jasper Woodbury, Complex Trip Planning 1: Journey to Cedar Creek


Students are challenged to help Jasper determine if he can make it home before sunset without running out of fuel. With 1 route, 1 mode of transportation, 1 speed, 1 fuel consideration, 1 driver and budget, Journey to Cedar Creek is the least complex of the Jasper trip planning problems. The major subproblems in this adventure involve travel time and fuel, and money also becomes an issue when students realize Jasper will need to purchase more fuel. As with each episode, students must generate the subproblems, identify relevant data and carry out the calculations to solve this approximately 15 step problem.
