|A Fermi question is posed with limited information given, and requires that students ask many more questions; for example, "How many water balloons would it take fill the school gymnasium?" ("What are the approximate dimensions of the gym?") Register as an individual or on a team of up to four for this Internet-based project. Solve new open-ended problems every week, submit solutions online, view hints, and see outstanding solutions to previous problems. Also read Fermi League Rules and Scoring; and Fermi Tips and Links.|
