Day 67: Mathalicious project choice

I let students choose between “Cover me” & “Chain Effect” I gave as little direction as I could tolerate & they worked hard on it today. We only worked on it in class for 1 day. They were shocked that I allowed them to use their cell phones to call local pizzarias & find out their pricing schemes. Some students used a computer to create graphs using Desmos. Another student was angry because she “never gets toppings, so this does not matter to her.” I will check on their progress throughout the week. It is due on Friday. I’ll let you know how it goes.
