How many windows would be on the 100th floor of this tower? To solve, students would simply calculate 100 x 6 + 2. A 100 floor double tower would have 602 windows.
Upcoming investigations will include building, analyzing, and representing Corner Towers & Square Towers. Students will be challenged to represent these situations of constant change by creating an arithmetic expression using a variable so that the number of windows on ANY given floor can quickly be determined.
