Day 28... Water Displacement
In Intermediate Algebra today, we borrowed some 100 mL graduated cylinders from my neighboring science teacher, added 50 mL of water, then dropped in dice (one at a time) to gather some data. I'm pretty proud of how well the students did today with finding slope when it wasn't a perfect line. The best part was how many of them nailed the exit ticket of "What kind of object would we need to use to create a line with a steeper slope?"
