The Parking Lot
Name
*
First
Last
To start our day, go to this parking lot by clicking on the picture.
Do you recognize it?
*
Our route travels from the truck in the corner to the doors of the building. I found out this distance was 0.0272 miles.
We want to minimize this distance, but we cannot walk in a straight line.
Why can we not walk in a straight line?
*
These are called constraints!
We can pass in between cars, as long as the line does not touch the cars
.
See if you can find a route that is as minimal a distance as possible. To do so:
1. Select “Undo Last Point”
2. Change Draw route: to manually (straight lines)
3. Make your path by double clicking where you want the next
marker
4. End with your marker at the doors
Find a route trying to minimize your distance. Record the distance.
What was your distance (in miles)?
