Egg Drop

You've probably seen this done before. We tried the famous egg drop experiment. Each kid got two eggs to wrap as they wanted. The idea was to see if the wrapping would protect the egg from breaking when dropped.#1 tissue and medical tape
#2 duck tape, duck tape and more duck tape
#3 attempted rubber band wrap.
#4 newspaper and yes, duck tape
#5 stuffing

Boy, very excited about dropping the eggs.
None of the eggs made it. The duck taped one cracked the least.

Problem Solving...

This morning I found myself explaining the relativity of pre-algebra to my 8Th grader.

My explanation probably was as relative as algebra itself.
