Invite a parent, sibling or friend to work through these open-ended problems with you. Remember, open-ended means there is more than one correct answer! Include your answer as a comment below.
1. Mrs. Phillpott is a cook for the Thornberry family. She usually makes a 2 kg roast for dinner on Thursdays. She knows that it takes 2 1/2 hours to cook this roast. Her boss is having a dinner party and she needs to make more food. She decides that she needs 6 kgs of meat. The problem is that she only has one oven and it will not hold a roast bigger than 4 kgs. How could she solve this problem? Answer in paragraph form.
2. A farmer grows 196 kg of potatoes. He sells them to a grocer who divides them into 5 kg and 2 kg bags. If the grocer uses the same number of 5 kg and 2 kg bags, how many bags of each does he use?
3. An object weighing 5 kg on Earth will weigh 2 kg on Mercury. The Statue of Liberty weighs 225 tonnes. What would it weigh on Mercury?
