The top three teams at each grade level will receive trophies for the Estimation Golf Tournament. These scores will not affect the individual or team scores for the regular competition.
Each team of three students ( designated A, B, and C) sits at a table with one judge ( Not their own teacher.)
The judge shows the first inequality problem to all three students; 520 < 17x + 59 < 530.
Student A ( with help from teammates) has 15 seconds to estimate a value for x so that 17x + 59 is between 520 and 530. For example Student A might suggest, x = 20. Using a calculator, the judge caclulates 17(20) + 59 = 399 and shows the x value, 20, and the result, 399, to all three team members.
Student B has 15 seconds to estimate a second value for x, say 30. The judge shows the x value, 30, and the result, 569 (17(30)+59) to all three team members. The round continues until the result is between 520 and 530. For example, this round might proceed:
x 
20 
30 
25 
27 
27.2 
Result 
399 
569 
484 
518 
521.4 
The teams score equals its number of guesses, in this case, 5.
B: Best score on Problem # 2
C: Best first guess (closest to the midpoint) on Question #3
D: Best first guess (closest to the midpoint) on Question #2
E: Best first guess (closest to the midpoint) on Question #1
All problems will involve the same type of double inequalities. Operations will be limited to addition, subtraction, division, whole number exponents, and radicals.
2200 < x^{3} < 2300
28 < 30 + 6x < 25
