I was not dishing out questions today instead students were.
They made their equations for both methods and then i asked one question: “What questions could we ask with this information?”
Here is their list:
Once they caught on that they would be answering their own questions they stopped giving them but we got 5 really good ones. We filled in the blanks with some numbers and then they were off answering questions.
A couple of the questions brought about other questions for example:
“What method makes more profit?”
S: “What do you mean which method makes more profit, like when are you going to make your expenditures back first?”
Me: “I am not sure what do you think?”
“Who will get to 120oz first?”
S:”They are both negative for 120oz. So what does that mean? Who makes more profit?”
Me: “What does profit mean then?”
Diff S: “Well whoever is less in debt right?”
Me: “I don’t know you tell me.”
