I am currently taking the a4a class online and I also thought that the egg launch activity was too difficult and had decided not to try it. Your experience makes me think I should take another look. What parts of your quadratic unit had you already taught when you used this activity? Would you use it again? Any suggestions or changes that should be made?
I shoot rubber bands at kids so it's only fair if a few get shot my way.
Could you please explain this activity to me.
It sounds like fun.
This activity reminds me of my childhood. I always seemed to be dragged to my mom's friends' houses and told to hang out with the friend's daughter. It seemed they all loved Barbies so it ended up I would be dangling Barbies off the stairs or tying them to train tracks. (I straightened out eventually.) I think my students would really enjoy this idea. And dodging rubber bands would be part of the fun.
I am always looking for activities that get my students working with the math and getting out of their seats. Thanks for sharing.
This sounds interesting. Could you please explain this activity to me?
This might be something I may want to try.
