This is a tremendous opportunity to integrate subjects in a math classroom. Hands-on STEM based learning for hands-on students. Along using basic algebra skills to solve basic physics problems, students will engage in reflective writing and use data to support decisions.
In this 16 page document, you are given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use in collecting data and an optional follow-up inquiry.
Of course I did not invent the idea of the Egg Drop, but I have extended it into my Algebra 1 classroom.
-- In “Egg Drop Contest”, students will design a sketch and create a material list for an egg drop device.
-- In “Egg Drop Competition Data”, students record and calculate their results for their egg device.
-- In "Egg Drop Contest Scoring", students can work through a hypothetical egg drop contest to prepare or review students for the math that will be involved in the project.
This activity can culminate in a student presentation that details their results and design experience!
