From an 8th Grade Math Lesson

More hands-on learning in math: students collecting data on height compared to arm span. Then they made scatter plots and trend lines to test Vitruvius's claim that a person's arm span is equal to their height.  Students also tested bridge thickness vs. breaking weight and bridge length vs. breaking weight.  They had a choice to do this with paper bridges, or virtual bridges on their Chromebooks.Middle School students measuring arm span3 middle school students in a math classroom building models of bridges
