Day 27

Having created whiteboard solutions to our problems. Today, students started and completed the buggy challenge.

I discovered this a couple of years ago on one of Frank Noschese’s Blogs. 

Students place buggies at the opposite ends of two rulers and predict when and where they will collide.

One thing that I should not be surprised at is that students who attempted an algebraic solution, were not consistently able to solve a system of 2 linear equations with 2 unknown variables.
