February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil will again, with great ceremony, come out of his burrow and look for his shadow. There’s nothing like a cute animal picture to make your students smile as they calculate the relative frequency of Phil’s upcoming prediction.
CCSS: 7.SP.5, 7.SP.6, 7.SP.7
For members we have an editable Word doc and solutions.
This week might also be a good opportunity to use these activities:
Throwing up – A parabolic motion activity about throwing snow to the side of a path.
Snow days – which is an activity observing and calculating the rate of snow fall in a 23 hour span. Students predict the final total.
