Mathman 11  



Students and parents of students should read my introduction to letterboxing before seeking the boxes. 

Park on the street close to the
entrance of the bike trail on Franklin Drive
just
south of HWY 60. Stand facing the signs and count
the number of signs at the beginning of the trail.
S_{8}=A Walk down
the trail. Enjoy the prairie all around you. Stop at the first sewer manhole you
come across. Take a
bearing of A degrees. (Note: Don't stand on the manhole as the metal will
affect the compass!) Find the
three digit number on the dog bathroom in that direction. Return to the manhole and proceed
as you were along the
trail.
t_{1}= __ [number on dog
bathroom] t_{n}= .9 t_{n1} t_{12}= B (rounded to the nearest whole number)_______ At the
intersection with the fourcolored pole (look off the trail to the left a bit),
stand in the center of the intersection and take a bearing of B degrees and continue on that trail.
Count the number of screw holes (including those with screws in them, but not
the nail) on the top
of the first bench you meet. Then, proceed on the trail until you come to a
road. Count the number of orange stripes on one side of the barricade you come to (partial stripes included). t_{1}=__ [number of stripes] t_{2}=__ [number of holes] t_{n}= t_{n1 }+ t_{n2} Find the 5^{th}
term and subtract 6 to get C = ______
At the
metal 'No Parking' sign take a bearing of C degrees and proceed down that trail.
Proceed to the "three sided island", but be careful where you stand! Watch
out for flowers! Take a bearing of D degrees and proceed down that trail.
Along the trail you will find a map with the trail distances on it. Add them all
up for a single number
At the intersection with a short trail on your left which leads to a black "path", walk on a bearing of E degrees. Count the number of stripes in the middle of the black "path" and let this value be N = ____. (Note: Look hard, they are faded and covered a bit.) Then go back to the trail original trail.. Take the N^{th}^{ }root of the 12^{th } term of the Fibonacci number sequence times 5N minus 5N to get F=______. Continue
on the trail you were on to the next intersection (on the right). There
are a number of trails here. Continue your hike on the trail that heads on
a bearing of F degrees. Before you come to a major turn in the path, an
information sign tells you about the local inhabitants. What is the name of the
third inhabitant pictured on the sign?
At the top of the stairs
head on a
bearing of G degrees. As you proceed along that trail count the number of logs across the trail (only those
put there on purpose). Stop counting once you reach the next bench. Let
the number of logs
At the
next intersection take a bearing of H degrees and continue along that trail.
When you come to a four way intersection continue walking straight ahead.
Proceed along that trail and head left at the first intersection, followed by a right at the
next intersection. At the top of this
hill there will be a very obvious 'landmark'. At the base of this landmark is a
rock. Fill in the first four words on the rock in the spaces below:
t_{3}= 50.8 t_{5}=
__ [number of 'progressions'] Find the common difference constant in this arithmetic sequence and multiply it by 10. This will give you the value of R = ______. When you
get to the climax look for the compass and fill in the blanks below:
