On the Cover: Find the Mathematics... in the Garden! a. How much soil will this garden bed hold? b. You will also need to create a larger raised bed for your garden. If you double all the dimensions of the original bed, how much soil will the new bed hold? c. If you triple all the dimensions of the original bed, how much soil will the new bed hold? d. Solve parts b and c using a different method than you originally used. 4. The germination percentage for dandelion seeds is 60%, meaning that for every ten seeds planted only six will develop into a dandelion. a. Create an equation, a table (with at least three points), and a graph that represents the relationship between number of seeds planted and germination. b. Consider if this relationship is proportional or non-proportional. c. Research the germination percentage for your favorite plant or flower and create an equation and graph that represents the relationship between number of seeds planted and germination. High School Algebra I & II You are going to build a rectangular raised garden bed. You only have 35 feet of wood to make the garden bed, and the space for an area of 60 square feet. Based on this information, find the best width and length for your garden. Explain your answer. 2. You have been asked to create a unique garden area. It needs to be a composite shape consisting of at least 4 of the following shapes: * Rectangle * Square * Triangle * Semicircle * Trapezoid The area of the garden should be greater than 45 square feet, but cannot exceed 60 square feet. Draw your garden area, label the dimensions, and prove the area is an appropriate amount. 3. I have started planning my vegetable garden, but I need some help. My plan is shown in the picture below. I know where I'm going to plant the sweet potatoes and pumpkins, but I do not know exactly where to plant the squash and carrots. Use the following information to decide where the squash and carrots should be planted, and label the location on the picture: a. The carrots should be planted 1/4 the distance between the sweet potatoes and pumpkins. b. The pumpkins need some room to grow, so the squash should be 1/2 the distance between the carrots and pumpkins. Geometry 1. The raised garden bed shown in the picture has been built for your garden.
