Do Now

Jenni, Scott, Steve, and Krista went to the Arizona State Fair. They each played the dart throw, ring toss, water shoot, and basketball throw. Each student won a different game. Based on the clues below, which game did each player win?

What are we solving for?

What do I need to do in order to solve the question?

  • Krista won a bear for outscoring everyone else at the water shoot

  • Steve correctly tossed two rings, but did not win the ring toss

  • Scott scored more than everyone at the basketball throw

  • Jenni didn’t score any points at the dart throw
