Estimating Acreage

Find a map of the United States that covers at least one 8" by 10" piece of paper. Assuming you can find the number of acres in the United States, design a simulation that will help you determine the number of acres in the state you live in (hint: think dartboard). Explain your experimental design and results.

Submit your idea for an investigation to InterMath.
