Question Description

TASK 3

You’ve spent some time wrestling with procuring tractors for the fair and trying to knock some sense into your food vendors, but now it’s time to start figuring out how everything goes together.

Measurements are a big deal in the fair, as they are in every day life. Are the power cables long enough to reach the vendors? Do the vendors have enough supplies? How big is the tent for the performers going to be, and is there enough space for it? We bought this stuff on the cheap, but it’s not even in normal measurements!

In this module, you will be working on how we use weights and measurements, and how can they be converted into other units of measurement.

  2. Volume

Watch the Khan Video, The Basics of Area, Perimeter

Now that you have the major concession areas identified, it is time to decide how many vendors you can accept and how much room you will give each. For this task you can choose to focus on the food vendors or the game vendors. Make a plan for how you will determine how much room each will need and how many the space you previously designated for this category of concession will hold.
