Wooly’s “Wonder”ful Tips Story Problem Challenge

Welcome to Scotland, where you will be visiting the shores of Loch Ness in search of

Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. This family challenge will have you answering all sorts of

problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Wooly knows that in

order to build a vacation vessel, your family will need to know how to problem solve.

Your only problem will be to keep your clumsy cousins out of

your way. Even though they may seem more interested in

collecting souvenirs than helping out with math problems,

you’ll want a plan. Otherwise, there’s no chance of earning

reward points or catching a glimpse of Nessie. Your goal in this

vacation is to earn reward points and earn a chance to see

Nessie (or earn “Nessie Sighting Points”). So, before you try to solve

each question, you will need to roll a die. If you roll a 1, 3, or 5

your family can add 2 Nessie Sighting Points, which means that

you successfully kept your cousins busy and “out of your hair” so

your family could do their work. If you roll a 2, 4, or 6, then Calvin or Clarisse got in your way

and your family failed to earn any extra points.

Legend of Loch Ness Facts

Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Britain. There is more water in Loch Ness than

all the other lakes in England, Scotland, and Wales put together. Loch Ness is around twenty-

two and a half miles long, about one and a half miles wide, and has a depth of around 750

feet. Since December of 1933 there have been alleged sightings of a 40 to 50-foot-long

monster in the loch (lake). Most of the Nessie witnesses describe something with two humps,

a tail, and a snakelike head. Nessie's movements have been studied, and the films and

photos analyzed to determine what Nessie might be- if she exists.
