Description

Combine math and exercise with this activity. Learners count how many times in a row they can skip rope or throw and catch a ball. They try again each day, week or month and they explore how their data changes over time: Do you get better with practice? How do you know? For a harder variation, investigate influences on endurance. If you are skipping rope, does it matter if you?re barefoot or wearing shoes? What if you shut your eyes? As learners track and analyze their data, they learn about ways to organize information so that it?s easy to spot trends, and they gain meaning for the notion of baseline. Available as a web page or downloadable PDF. Students should be able to count to 20. Less
