After earlier activities with linear programming, Ms. Cho's class of 28 students started on the Fish Derby problem. Note that the students had previously established numbers of existing carp and bass, so that they were able to extend the activity beyond what was outlined in the Interactive Activity.

As you watch, consider how the problem is set up, the disposition displayed by both students and the teacher with respect to problem solving, and the techniques and approaches used by the students. What specific details of problem solving do you see applied?

Please watch the video excerpt at left of the Fish Derby problem (duration 5:47).
