Day 52... Taco Cart Take 2

Today in Intermediate Algebra, I presented the "Taco Cart Sequel". In other words, where would the Taco Cart need to be located for Dan and Ben to arrive at the same time? My class today was such an amazing example of perseverance. These kids haven't always had positive experiences in math, but they tackled this problem for an entire class period. The girl above started on a small whiteboard, then took over her neighbor's whiteboard, and finally moved to the desktops, guessing and checking her way to victory. When she was done (with just a few minutes to spare in class), she asked if she was the first person to finish. When I told her yes, her response was "Man, I feel like such a NERD!" :)
