Know What do I know? What facts am I starting with? Define the problem

4
Need What do I need? Whats missing? What other facts do I need to find or determine?

5
Do What do I need to do? Develop a method, a solution, an algorithm for solving the problem Execute the algorithm

6
Example At a party, Mary ate 3 slices of pizza, Frank ate 4 slices and Sally ate 2 slices. What is the average number of slices Mary, Frank and Sally ate? Know Need How to compute an average

Room No. 3 5.56.5 10 4 3 2 2.5 2.8

14
Time to share! Write up your method as a step-by- step process Hand this process over to another team Read and critique another teams method and return it to them Review the comments concerning your method

15
How well did you do? Did your work for each of the three rooms? Did you need to adjust your method at any point? What about columns, and other cutouts? Would your method work for other size tiles? For carpeting?
