Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Pennies - Deal or No Deal?

You have a Chess Board (8 X 8 = 64 total squares).
You start with one penny on the corner square.
On the square next to it, double the number of pennies (two).
On the square next to that one, double the number of pennies again (four).
On the square next to that one, double the number of pennies again (eight).
And so on… Keep doubling until you have filled all of the Chess Board squares with pennies.
Now add up all of the pennies.

Now, I'll give you:

$10 Millions Dollars.

…or…

The total of all of the pennies on the Chess Board?

Deal or No Deal?

Is that your final answer?
