So Many Golf Balls
I’m honestly not sure how to use this, which probably means it will turn out awesomely when run with real kids:
Some great #anyqs:
- How long for X% to get down the stairs?
- How many are left on the stairs?
- How many total balls?
- What’s the maximum volume they take up?
- How hurt would you get at the bottom of the stairs?
- How many collisions total?
- What’s g at 300 fps?
I had a long discussion with a biology class today about this video. This class and I are having a really hard time connecting. Every time I try an assessment experiment, they do whatever it takes to bring it back to easiness town.
Every time I try a prompt that I think will be awesome, I’m met with “when will I use this?” Even if the prompt is an example of using something in real life.
I suppose I’ll just have to swallow my pride and admit that you just don’t connect with all of them, and do what you still can.
Either way we had a fantastic discussion about art. Why do we do things even though we have no idea their purpose? Some of the students in this class have their lambaste glands on full alert when I start any of these sort of shenanigans, but a few, I think, got the point. Not that the others are dullards or philistines; I just must have missed connecting with them, and now it’s awkward this late in the year.
A fantastically quirky girl said, “You can’t know what will inspire you, and you can’t know what inspiration will come from what; that’s art.”
