Snow – and proportions – are in the air

We had our first snow of the winter yesterday and we have our first snow delay today. We have 30 minute classes so I am scrambling a bit to modify my plans for the day. Luckily, my pal Megan (@veganmathbeagle) sent out a great question yesterday on twitter. Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 9.49.25 AM

We are working on proportional logic in Geometry as we introduce similarity for figures. In my Discrete Math class we had a test yesterday. I have options now for three of my five classes today! I borrowed dice from my AP Stats colleague and we will play and do some data gathering today. Can’t wait to report on how it goes.

 

PS – I asked Megan if order mattered. She replied by asking me if orders matters. I will extend the favor to my students and ask them to decide if order matters and if that changes the answer to the question.
