Efficient Storage

Who's the best for the job? A modeling lesson asks your class to analyze job applicants before deciding who to hire to best get the work done. Pupils work in groups to find the best combination of workers that will be able to meet the needs of the business owner. After providing one set of workers, the teams figure out how to supplement the workers to meet higher demands during the holiday season.
