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



Background: Clues Park your car on Williamsburg St. near where it intersects with Freistadt Rd. Walk a block west from that intersection to the Seminary. The letterbox hunt begins at the north entrance to the Seminary where there is an arch marking the entrance. Hanging from the arch there is a sign which has a number (A)______. Look to the right side of the drive past the entrance and you will see a speed limit sign: (B)_______mph. Use the two digits of B and the number A to create a threedigit number BA. Walk down the drive, across the bridge, and to an intersection between a walking path and the drive. Walk a bearing of BA degrees until you reach a statue surrounded by benches (you may walk on the grass). Step 2: Underneath the statue there is a pentagonal shape with writing on each side. Find the year he died and the year he was born. Use this information to find the value of (C)______. Take the path that goes at a bearing of C degrees to the statue, but walk away from the statue on it. From the intersection you quickly come to, find the average of the two years on the statue (born and died) and divide the average by D to get (E)______ (round to the nearest whole number). Take the road that is E degrees and follow it all the way to the stop sign. Step 3: Once you reach the stop sign, turn right and count the number of light posts until you reach the tennis court (F)______. (Make sure you count the post at the corner of the intersection). Stop! Now walk a heading of E divided by F (rounded to the nearest whole number) degrees until you reach an open area between a garage and the dorm building (again, you may cross grass). Follow the side of the building opposite the garage heading east then north until you reach an arch. Step 4: Once you reach the arch you will see an open area, walk at a bearing of (G times N)______ degrees until you reach the center light post. From there count the number of double door sets (H)______. Walk on a heading of (H)______ degrees for about 100 paces until you reach another light post. Multiply H times I to find (J)______ and walk J degrees until you are about 40 feet from an electrical pole. (You cannot see the pole from the light post because the trees block the view). There you will see a path that leads to the woods on your right. Take this path. Step 5: Almost immediately after you start on the trail, you will reach an intersection. Take the (K)______ degree path and follow it down a hill. After about 15 paces there is a side path that leads right, which you take. Continue on the path for quite a while until you reach another intersection (your path ends at a "T"). Take the path that is on a bearing of (L) ______ degrees. Walk 10 paces to a skinny tree and a fourway intersection. Keep straight at the intersection (do not go out of the woods). After 20 paces keep right and walk over a block that takes you over a small dried up creek (unless its been raining). Keep going at (ML) _______ degrees and continue on this trail until it leads you out of the woods (no left of right turns at intersections). Step 6: Once you leave the woods head at a bearing of (N)______ degrees for about 60 paces until you reach your destination. Enjoy a rest in this nice area on the bench. Then walk on a bearing of 355 degrees from the bench to the tree line. There, just inside the tree line is a threetrunked tree. Look for the box where the three trunks meet. When you return the box, please be sure it fits snuggly and is covered naturallylooking with leaves and sticks. Thanks! Math Problems:
To get C:
To get D:
To get G: Solve for the variable (G)______
Solve the equation for x by using the natural logarithm function. Round to the nearest hundredth. 36^{2X} = 20 Now replace what you found for x in this equation and find (I). Round to the nearest whole number. 117x = I (I) = ______
To get K:
Solve for the variable k: (K) = _______ To get L: Solve for the variable L: (L) = ______ To get M:
Solve for x, y, and z to
make a three digit number. x + y + z = 4 3x + y –z = 6 2x 5y + 9z = 17 M = __ __ __ ^{ x
