What questions can we ask.

June 5, 2017

Today we had 3 red cups and 2 white cups on each table.  The goal was to ask questions.  We came up with long lists of questions that we could answer, or questions that we were wondering about.

Some of us focussed on comparing the two cups, some calculated volumes and others calculated surface areas.  

Some of us played the cup game and then we got down to business….

Some of us stacked the cups, and figured out how many cups we need to make a stack as tall as the tallest group member.

We finally worked on the big intense challenge:  if white cups stack from the desk, and red cups stack from the floor, is there a magic number of cups that would create equal towers?


We made tables and graphs


And finally we tested our calculations
