Product Description
Learn how to incorporate math and engineering with marble run challenges. Challenge your students to make a marble run that guides the marble to its destination. In order to complete the challenges, they will need to transform linear equations. Students will learn how to manipulate the slope-intercept form of an equation so that their ramp has the correct slope and y-intercept. They will also put domain restrictions on the equations to represent the length of the wooden ramps needed to guide the ball into the cup. Materials required:

1 Pegboard with x/y coordinates
Various lengths of wooden ramps
Wooden Pegs
Marbles
Paper Cups
