Enrichment #1 - 3rd - 6th Grade (Taipei-101)

This is the first in what is hopefully a series of enrichment problems at different grade levels.  The goal is to take a problem that has potential and make is something better.  All the problems can be used at different grade levels with different expectations.

Collaboration is the key.  Post how you would edit the problem.  I will edit it as the week goes on.  The initial problem will be up for 1 day without any edits.  Be creative - think outside the box.  What would make this problem a much better problem or task?  Can we differentiate the problem to meet a broader audience?  What would make it more rigorous and meet the needs of the 21st century learner?


Taipei-101 is the 2nd tallest building it the world.  The building has 101 floors averaging 22 steps per floor.  If you were to walk from the 1st floor to the top of the building, how many steps would you have to climb?

EDITS - let me know what you think...
