Classes got off to a great start last week as we introduced Unit 1: Problem Solving.

Students worked in groups to design aluminum foil boats to support as many pennies as possible. Groups had two rounds to work on their boats, with the goal of trying to hold more pennies than they did in round 1. The structure of the activity foreshadows different steps of the problem solving process that students will be introduced to in more detail in the following lessons.
