#5 comment...that is g...I did not see that with #4!<br />#5 comment...that is great. I love that!<br />#6 I have a lot of Golden Ratio stuff in unit 2, which I just finished today, and this problem is kind of like a preview...however, I never heard of the pentagon problem. Thank you! That's awesome.

Looks good to me. Just some extension tho...Hi Lisa,<br />Looks good to me. Just some extension thoughts this time:<br /><br />For #4 this could be easily extended to a version of the Monte Hall problem for a followup. <br /><br />For #5 I always like what is the unit digits of some very large factorial like 10000000123123! as warmup to how many zeros are there.<br /><br />For #6 I prefer the golden ratio in fractional form to decimal. You could easily add a problem that more directly uses it as a second half. After doing a basic rectangle type problem I find the presence of the ratio in pentagons to be very exciting/unexpected.
