What is 3 Act Math?
Examples from a real class
Miss Chen’s parents have a leaky roof at their place. They ask her to go up and see what the problem is. Unfortunately, Miss Chen does not have a long enough ladder to reach the roof, and she doesn't want to spend too much money to buy one. What's the shortest length ladder she could buy to get onto her parents' roof?

What information do you need to solve this problem? Why do you need this?
Home Depot is having a sale on 40 ft ladders. Miss Chen decides that the 40 ft ladder is a better buy than the 25 ft one, so she buys it. With this new ladder, how far away should she place the base of the ladder if she wants the top to just touch the roof?
