Maine Map


Car Project

Here is some helpful advice on your car project:

Insurance: Don’t use your real name. Use 04401 for zip code. Don’t need Social security number.



Taxes: After you’ve selected all of your options and added up the price of the car, you need to add in the Sales Tax. (5%)

Financing: You don’t need to apply for financing. Just go to this site and select which kind of car you’re getting. You need to multiply the total price (including taxes) of your car (not including your insurance) by the finance rate and then add that number to the total price.


Drivers’ Ed: There are several driving schools in the area.



In this project you will choose a car to buy and decide what the "hidden" expenses will be. You have several worksheets to complete. There are recommended resources on insurance, maintenance, and financing but you can use other resources as well.

3d Tic Tac Toe Toc

See if you can figure this out.

Watch this!

Can you prove that 25 divided by 5 is 14? Try it and then watch this video.

The sum of three consecutive numbers is 45. What are the integers?
X + X + 1 + X +2 = 45
3x + 3 = 45
3x = 42
x = 14 x +1 = 15 x+2 = 16 14 + 15 + 16 = 45

The sum of three consecutive odd integers is 69. What are the integers? You have 5 minutes.


What are the five parts of a word problem?

Solve this problem using the five parts of a problem format.
I’m thinking of a number. Six more than five times the number is twenty less than 7 times the number.


Please simplify the following by using the distributive property:

3(x + 2) = 4(x – 7) =
