Popcorn Day

March 6, 2018

We popped corn today.  We started off by brainstorming all the things we wondered about, and all the questions we could make and solve regarding popcorn.

We measured volumes, and volume changes, we timed how long it took to pop

We made containers out of one cheed of paper and tried to maximize the volume.

We noticed that the buckets aren’t perfect cylinders, so We figured out how to approximate the volume, and then checked it using our known cylinders.

We did a lot of math and explored so many different things!  It is hard to imagine how many explorations came from a bag of popcorn.
