Robert's Salary: $50,216.30 (~$25/hr, or ~4x a High School student working at McDonalds; a fast food manager in Flordia would earn about $14,000 less than Robert)

Robert's Travel: $87.46

Statute: Official Code of Georgia 50-6-27

Science In Action: Science Grant Budgeting and Planning

Speculation: How did Robert use $87.46?

(Assume $1.72/gallon is within 25 gallons.

Suggesting that he did not travel from the High School to the U of GA Science Fair, 67 miles away.

If we assume it was the science fair, then we can calculate the approximate location from the University of Georgia, to find where Robert Most likely lives.

It appears as though Robert filled up on gas, spent one night at the University of Georgia, then returned.

Devise an alternative method of calculating the most probable events. You may use any method other than linear programming. Present your result in a GAAS-compliant format for the School Board audit committee. [This may be of assistance: Click Click ]


A. What do you think Robert spent the money on?

B. Did Robert spend one night or two nights?

C. Did the $87 include a conference fee and supplies?

D. How much gas do you think Robert purchased?

E. Did he fill up his tank and have some gas left over that he didn't use?

F. How many sandwiches and sodas do you think Robert purchased?

Devise a budgeting matrix that will quickly justify the proposed funding requirements for additional official tasks.

Your job is to create a method of communication that supervisors will readily understand, and decreate the audit costs by 75%.

You are free to re-design your computer, use alternative language tools, and may rely on any format including crayons, clay tablets, or electronic media.

Tip: Clay Tablets have lasted longer than the average computer disk. Are you sure you want to use a computer?

[ Calculator ]

Let's do some analysis.

Enter the following data:

A. Miles Driven: Enter 200

B. Gallons of Gas: Enter 10

C. Cost per Gallon: 1.72

D. Miles per day: 25

Result: About $65/month on gas.

What are you thoughts?

Science in Action: Time and Motion

Activity: What time do you think Robert gets up in the morning?



1. Robert drives 1 mile under the average speed limit, or 44 mph, just to be safe.

2. Robert arrives on average 27 minutes before class starts, or 7:33.

3. Robert drives 25 miles in his car.

4. Robert takes 43 minutes to wake up, take a shower, eat breakfast, make his bed, shave, then brush his teeth.

5. Rovert lives in an average home in Georgia, and has to transverse 1260 square feet.

Science in Action: Robert's Early Morning Energy


1. What is the average total square footage Robert physically moves across before he leaves his house?

2. What is the average speed Robert moves while in his house?

Science in Action: Using Vectors to Plot Robert's Movement

A. Vectors: [ Read here ]

B. Impulse: [Assume Robert weighs 180 pounds: Click ]

C/ Graphing: [ How to make a position-time chartClick ]

Tasks: You are to create a two dimensional rendering of Robert's house. You are to plot Robert's movement and calcate his average momentum at 3 minute intervals. Your job is to graph his velocity-vs-time to create an acceleration chart.

After you complete your charting and analysis, you are to make recommendations where Robert should spend more time, less time; how where he should move faster, or slower.


A. Total Square feet

B. Total time spent in house

C. Assumed Activities

[1] Moving from Bed to Bathroom
[2] Moving from bathroom to Kitchen
[3] Moving from Kitchen to Mailbox and driveway

D. Assumed Time Spent in Each Location

[1] Kitchen: 14 minutes
[2] Garage: 3 minutes
[3] Mailbox: 2 minutes
[4] Bathroom: 17 minutes
[5] Bedroom: 7 minutes
[6] Other: 1 minute Click
Total: 44

E. Assumed Distance between each

[1] Bedroom to Kitchen: 30 feet
[1] Kitchen to Bathroom: 16 feet
[2] Bathroom to Bedroom: 14 feet
[3] Bathroom to Garage: 27 feet
[4] Mailbox to Car: 75 feet

Science in Action: Helping Robert

Useful Tool: If you think Robert moves too slowly in the morning, here is a Rocket Nozzle site you can use to design a Nozzle that Robert can attach to his pajamas. [ Click ]

The Java Applets will appear as very small boxes, so you'll need to open them. You will see a start page; and then a rocket design page.

Speed of light: [ Click ]


A. At his current average speed in the morning, how long would it take for Robert to arrive at Alpha Centauri? Why hasn't he already started?

B. Using the above information from the Georgia State auditor, how much money would Robert need to travel from his school to Alpha Centauri?

C. Design a Rocket that will allow Robert to arrive at Alpha Centauri and arrive back at school in time to dismiss class for lunch.

D. Design a space suit that Robert can wear to hold his rocket [ Custom Clothing: Click ]

E. Using your designed rocket, calculate the deceleration point for orbit entry to Alpha Centauri. [ These may be helpful: Click ]

F. When/If Robert returns, how far in Astronaumical Units has the Earth traveled through space when Robert lands. You do not have to assume a static solar system model. [This may be helpful: Click ]

G. Discuss the g-forces you anticipate Robert will face, and why the suit you have designed will protect Robert. Would you wear it? [ Click ]

If you think Robert has to rush, perhaps you have ideas on how he might redesign his house, or find another house closer to school. [ Click ]

If you think Robert spends too much time on the internet looking information about himself, make suggestions on where Robert may want to put his PhD to better use.
