Bottle Flipping Challenge

St. Angela Merici #grade8sam Bottle Flipping Challenge

As bottles have been flipped incessantly since September, I figured we should try to incorporate the "madness" into some kind of a math lesson. After thinking it through, and really connecting a variety of expectations from the Ontario Math Curriculum, this is what I came up with... 

The end result was a fantastic math culminating activity that incorporated everything from volume of a cylinder, to algebraic reasoning. It was a fantastic mini unit that truly maximized student engagement.

Check out some videos of students totally engaged in learning and consolidating their math concepts.
