Parking Problem
Foster, Colin
Mathematics Teaching, n229 p47-48 Jul 2012
This is the story of a real problem, not a problem that is contrived, or invented for the convenience of the appropriate planning tool. This activity by a group of students, defined simply as "8FN", might be likened to an "end of term concert". If you just happened to be a delegate at the ATM Conference 2003 you might remember the analogy. Social issues are discussed along with practical necessities. Even Google maps had a part to play in the classroom activity. Might this problem work for you? (Contains 5 figures.)
