Day 111–Guess My Number

We have a fantastic guest STEM education program visiting our 6th graders. Today the presenter told them she was thinking of a number like this:photo

Each group had to 1) pick a number like hers; 2) subtract their number from hers (with calculators); 3) share the absolute value of their result:photo

The team who was closest to her number got to go first in the activity. Grade level appropriate twist on an old routine.
