I just finished reading a book, Into Thin Air, about a group of people that climbed Mt. Everest. I learned some really interesting things while reading the book. Did you know that mountain is 29,035 feet tall, and that the wind blows 118 miles per hour?!? About how tall is Mt. Everest to the nearest hundred? About how hard does that wind blow to the nearest ten? Explain your thinking.
_When working with complex problems we are using a process called KWCS. This helps us think about a problem so that we understand what we Know, Want to know, what the Conditions are, and then a possible Solution. The chart to the right is how we worked through this process together and is also included in our Math Notebook.
