This resource presents problems involving distance, rate and time. The first challenge asks students to determine the number of days it would take a tern to migrate from the Arctic to the Antarctic given a constant rate of speed. Additional challenges about distance and speed of Monarch butterfly migration, and comparing flight times and distances for the Peregrine falcon and Eurasian woodcock, are also included. There are hints and prompts for students in the Getting Started section. Students may also check their answer and see steps to solve the problem. PDF files of the challenges are linked from the site for printing. Less
