Mathman 26 Echos Letterbox by Wilk et al

 Terrain: Grassy park Difficulty: Depends on math ability Placed by: The Dragon (Mathman) and the Honors Advanced Algebra students and teacher of 2007-08 Location: Spassland Park, Germantown, WI County: Washington, WI Materials needed: Calculator, Compass, Writing Utensil, Personal Stamp, Inking Pens

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

Be sure to read through all the clues before looking for the boxes so you know what is expected of you.

Clues:

1.
Arrive at Spassland Park in Germantown

2. As you are driving write down the number on the speed limit sign.

3. Park and begin at the concrete water fountain.

4. Facing west put the speed limit, x, in the equation and you will get P, the number of paces to the next clue.

(??x16/ 2) = p - 6

5. Once here, use the speed limit number again as x, moving west P paces to get to the next landmark.

P + 7 = 32 + x

6.  Moving on, calculate this determinant to find the paces you need to move in the southwest direction to get to a tall structure that is your next checkpoint.  If it is winter, looking to your right you could use some ice skates.

7. (??180x5) + 19= P + 14 is the equation that will give you the paces P in the northwest direction you should walk to the appropriate sign.

8. Use Y as the number of paces in step 7 to get the next number of paces P.

Y = P – (9x5)

9.
Solve this matrix multiplication to find the number of paces to earn… 52 = Bonus Points!

10.
Looking at the object, make about a 170 degree turn around and take 45 paces south.

11. You will reach mother nature’s landmark, after moving around some brush.

Congrats! Look up and reach for the tree crook.
