Problem Statement
Corey the camel has 3,000 bananas. He has to deliver the bananas 1,000 miles to the market. For every mile Corey travels, he eats one banana. Corey can only carry 1,000 bananas at one time. For this problem I have to find out how many bananas Corey delivers to the market. Process

For my process I used the maximum number of bananas Corey could carry per trip, which were 1,000 bananas in three trips. The first Trip I stopped at 250 miles and stashed 500 bananas. Corey ate 500 bananas on that trip because he walked to 250 miles and back to zero which means Corey ate 500 bananas, leaving him at zero bananas when he reached start. In the second trip Corey traveled with 1,000 bananas. He stopped at 250 miles, and picked up 250 bananas, which leaves him at 1,000. He continued to travel 250 more miles making him reach 500 miles; at 500 miles Corey stashed 250 bananas. On this trip Corey lost 750 bananas leaving him at 250. On trip three, Corey picked up 250 bananas at 250 miles, leaving him at 1,000 bananas because the banana he ate per mile was regained when Corey picked up the 250 bananas. Corey continued to 500 miles where he picked up 250 bananas, 250 is the number of miles that Corey traveled, leaving him at 1,000 bananas. Corey had to travel 500 miles to reach the market. When he traveled 500 miles he lost 500 bananas leaving Corey with 500 bananas when he reached the market.

Solution
My solution is Corey arrived with 500 bananas to the market. I believe my solution is correct because I split my points into factors of 1,000 which is the destination of the market.

Extension
If Corey the Camel had 4,000 bananas and had to deliver it to a market 2,000 miles away, and ate a banana per mile and could only carry 1,000 bananas at a time, how many bananas would Corey the Camel deliver? Evaluation

I found this problem too difficult. This POW made me think a lot about how I was going to get 3,000 bananas to 1,000 miles by only carrying 1,000...

Corey’s Camels POW
Problem Statement
The problem basically is about a camel named Corey that has to carry 3000 bananas to a place 1000 miles away. But, Corey can only carry 1000 bananas and Corey has to eat one banana for every mile she walks/runs/skips/hops, etc. In addition to that, there is a refrigerator at every mile. So the question being asked is how many bananas can Corey get to the market with all these requirements?
Strategy
My strategy for this problem is to make some sort of a chart and/or explain the POW in steps. I will explain the problem in a clear and understandable way to make sure the person reading it will understand it and how the problem is very complicated/easy.
Problem Process
Once I read the problem, I knew you had to think outside the box, but I wasn’t sure how. So I started off like this:
Number of Bananas Corey is carrying
Number of Bananas dropped off and at which mile
Number of bananas left/needed for the returning trip
1000
200th: 600 bananas
200 bananas
1000
200th: 600 bananas
200 bananas
1000
200th: 800 bananas
0 bananas
1000
600th: 200 bananas
400 bananas
1000
600th: 200 bananas
0 bananas
Solution
Evaluation
I think I would rate the POW, Corey the Camel, a 3.5...

...Problem Statement:
CoreyCamel has 3,000 bananas in her small banana grove in the desert. The marketplace where Corey sells her bananas is 1,000 miles away. Corey has to walk to the market to sell her bananas. For every mile that Corey walks, she must eat 1 banana. Corey can only carry 1,000 bananas at one time. For POW 13, I have to figure out how many bananas Corey can get to the market.
Process
To solve POW 13, I first worked on a mini-POW to help me figure out POW 13. I used the same process in POW 13 as I did in a mini-POW. The process is as follows:
1. Corey picks up 1,000 of the bananas, travels 200 miles, and drop 600 bananas at the 200 mile point. There are 200 bananas left for the trip back.
2. Pick up 1,000 more bananas, travel 200 miles, pick up 200 of the bananas that Corey dropped earlier. (Corey now has 1,000 bananas again.)
3. Travel an additional 333 1/3 miles. (533 1/3 mile point) Corey now has 666 2/3 bananas. Drop 333 1/3 bananas there and travel back 333 1/3 miles to the 200 mile point.
4. Pick up the 200 bananas that were dropped there earlier and head back to the banana grove.
5. Pick up another 1,000 bananas. Travel back to the 200 mile point. Drop 800 bananas and pick up the remaining 200 bananas that were dropped there earlier.
6. With the 1,000 bananas, travel 333...

...CoreyCamel
Problem Statement CoreyCamel owns a banana grove with 3000 bananas on it. She can only carry 1000 bananas at a time. The market where she can sell her bananas is 1000 miles away. Sounds easy right? Wait there’s a catch. For every mile she walks she has to eat one banana. See now it got hard. So with all of this said how many bananas will he be able to take to the market and sell?
Process Doing the mini POW helped a lot with this one. Because knowing that CoreyCamel can drop bananas on the way to the market is an important part, because of he couldn’t the answer would be an obvious zero. Since you can drop them I decided to drop 800 bananas at the 100 mile point. That way she can eat her 100 bananas that she needs to on her way there and still have another 100 to get back to her banana grove. When she gets there she’ll have 900 new bananas. The only problem is that she can only carry 1,000 bananas at a time. So she takes 1,000 bananas the rest of the way. This would leave her with 100 bananas. Then I realized that wasn’t the largest amount that she could sell. So I started to work backwards from 500 miles. I did this because 500 is half of 1,000. The only problem with 500 is that she would use 500 bananas to get there and wouldn’t be able to drop any bananas because she would have to use the last 500 bananas to get back. So I started to work with 400 miles. When she...

...POW 13: CoreyCamel
By Alex Cohen
Problem Statement: CoreyCamel has 3,000 bananas to take to the market. He can only carry 1,000 at a time. The market is 1,000 miles away. Every mile Corey eats a banana. My job is to find out; how many bananas he can get to the market place?
Process: To do this POW I started with Mini Camel to find a good strategy. The strategy we found was this: take as many bananas as you can to a certain distance and drop the rest, minus enough to get back. For example go 100 miles, drop 800, then come back 100 miles, you have used all of your bananas. Next I applied this method to CoreyCamel, and since our teacher said the most number of bananas he can bring back was 533 1/3 I realized that after the 1st 1,000 were gone, I would use the other 2,000 by dividing them into 1/3s since the only way to get 33 1/3 is to divide something by 3, like 1,000 divided by 3 is 333 1/3. 533 333 is 200, so I know that the 1st trip has to evolve 200, since I need 200 to be left over when I'm done to get me the rest of the way. I drew out a time line of events to show Corey's movements as he progresses.
Solution: Corey starts by picking up 1,000 bananas, and walking them 200 miles. Next he drops 600 and goes back 200. After that he picks up another 1,000 and goes 200 miles. He then picks up 200 bananas from his pile of 600. He now...

...CamelCamel is the animal that is known by fatty mass on its back called hump. There are two species of camels. The first is the dromedary that has a single hump and lives in North Africa and the Middle East. The other is the Bactrian camel which is living in the Central Asian.Because of adaptation to living on the waterless desert; Camel known by "the ship of the desert" .Camel has a wonderful ability to bear the thirst and ability to tolerate a lack of water in the tissues of its body. Camel stores the water in its body. The hump is the natural place to store trans fats from its food surplus and also is suitable for water conservation within the synthesis of lipids and grease. Also, camel's feet are stores of water; feet tissue is working to maintain water in the form of strings. When camel needs to water, the blood absorbs water from the feet. Likewise, Camel keeps urine in the bladder as long as it is in need of water, when it needs the water; the blood absorbs urine again and pushes it into the stomach, especially bacteria converts urine to protein and water. In addition, Camel's nose is doing the condensation of water vapor that comes out with the exhaled air, so it is the only animal that restores the water in the air that comes out of it.Camel has the ability to drink sea water because the kidneys get rid of excess salts.

...Ozymandias is a powerful leader whose agressive character traits led to his own self destruction. Through the use of syndoche, catalogue, and ethos, Shelly effectively appeals to the pathos, multiple interpretations and intellegtual aspect of his audience. “The hand that mocked and the heart that fed,” is a line that embodies syndoche by using the word “hand” Shelly is refering to the sculptors hand. The “heart” that fed is referring to Ozymandias’s heart, meaning his heart fed his mind and his ability to believe that he was “king of kings”(line 10). Shelly knew it was effective to use syndoche when describing Ozymandias and the sculptors realationship and conflict. By stating only the bosy parts “hand” amd “heart,” it relates to the fact that only arts of the statue were left. The statue could be seen as either a sign of respect for Ozymandia’s legacy or as mocking Ozymandias and the legacy he left. Same with the “hand” and the “heart” could have both positive an d negative associations. During the firts half of the peom, “Stand in the desert…the heart that fed,” Shelly uses catalogue to describe the statue, a tangible thing, and in the latter part of that quote Shelly describes how the sculptor is able to accuratly detail the statue and the emotion/mental side of all that is associated with the image of the statue and the legacy that Ozymandias has left on this world. Shelly describes the statue in the first part of the catalogue so her audience can imagine it and will...

...POW #13 CoreyCamel
Problem Statement: Corey the Camel has a small banana grove in the desert, her harvest this year was 3,000 bananas. The market where Corey sells her bananas is 1,000 miles away. Corey has to walk to the market to sell her bananas, for each mile Corey walks, she eats one banana. Corey can only carry 1,000 bananas at a time. In this POW the goal is to find the number of bananas that Corey can get to the market.
Process: To find the answer to this POW I did the mini POW, as suggested. I used the same process for POW 13, as I did for the mini POW. The process is as follows:
1. Corey starts the trip with 1,000 bananas.
2. She travels 200 miles, she’s left with 800 bananas. She stashes 600 bananas at 200 mile point, keeping 200 the trip back.
3. Corey picks up another 1,000 bananas.
4. She travels 200 miles, she has 800 left. She then picks up 200 from the bananas stashed. She now carries 1000 bananas and has 400 more stashed.
5. She travels an additional 333 1/3 miles, she’s left with 666 2/3 bananas, she stashes 333 1/3 there (533 1/3 mile point), she has 333 1/3 bananas left.
6. She then travels back 333 1/3 miles to 200 mile point. She has no bananas left, so picks up 200 stashed (leaving 200 still at 200 mile point), and travels back to the grove, 200 miles away.
7. She picks up another 1,000...
