A-maze-ing Math

  • General questions and activities:

    • Why does USPS/UPS/FedEx care about this problem?

    • Make your own maze and challenge your friends (use graph paper).

  • Questions for grades 3-5:

    • What numbers/letters can you draw using only right turns? Can you spell your name?

    • Estimation: How many steps will you take? How many times will you turn?

    • Measurement: How long is your solution?

    • What shapes/angles do you see in the maze? What do they have in common?

    • What happens if you switch the start and finish?

  • Questions for grades 6-8:

    • Can you make a maze that has no solution when you can’t turn left?

    • Make the maze on the top left above solvable by adding some paths?

    • Inequalities: Is there a solution with less than 4,5,6,7, etc. turns?

    • Can you get home taking no left turns?

  • Questions for grades 9-12:

    • Probability: Flip a coin at each intersection. Heads means turn right, tails means go straight. Will you get out of the maze?

    • Can you make a route that goes over every path?

    • What is the shortest possible route?

    • What if you go in reverse taking only left turns?

    • Why does your number of right turns have remainder 3 when divided by 4?
