On Thursday, our class participated in Our Really Exciting Online Project! It might sound like just fun and games, , stacking Oreo cookies, but we learned a lot using a variety of math skills. We each made a prediction about how many cookies we would be able to stack. Next, we took two attempts to build the tallest free standing tower and solved for the difference between the two stacks. Then, we found out our class average and shared it in a google form. You can see the results here. A little extra information we discovered was the following:
- Mean – 18
- Median – 17
- Mode – 16
- Range – 8
To view our fumbles, tumbles and stacking champion, watch our short video below!
