Mountains of gold

Created for Level 3 Core Maths as an early introduction to 'Fermi Estimations' and the problem solving cycle. It could also be used for KS4 students. Students are asked to find information to calculate the value of a stack of £2 coins the height of Mount Everest and follow this up by posing their own questions to solve.
