In "Journey to Cedar Creek," students meet Jasper as he reads a newspaper ad about an old boat for sale. Jasper decides to see this boat, and we follow him up the river to Cedar Creek Marina, where Jasper test drives the boat and learns that the running lights don't work. When Jasper decides to buy the boat, students are challenged to help Jasper determine if he can make it home before sunset-- without running out of fuel. With one route, mode of transportation, speed, fuel consideration, driver, and budget, this episode is the least complex trip problem. It is designed for Grade 5 and up. As with each episode, students must generate the subproblems, identify relevant data, and carry out the calculations to solve this problem in approximately 15 steps.
