How tall are we?

September 8, 2017

Today we used the “cup” as a unit of height.  Each group had only 4 cups and had to determine how many cups tall one group member was.

There were no restrictions given on how to arrange the cups or how to solve the problem.

Some groups wanted to use string, some wanted meter sticks, some wanted rulers…


Some groups used dividing, and some used multiplying….some used trial and error.

We stacked cups in the end to verify that our math was correct.
Most of us had calculated pretty accurately!
