Rates, Ratios, Dimensional Analysis, Distance/Rate/Time
Engage students by exploring these impressive marathon world records! Students will use dimensional analysis and calculate rates and times.
Start by allowing students to explore the data in the article. Then guide them through the dimensional analysis portion to make sure they have the skills necessary for the next part. Allow students to work in pairs or small groups to complete the remainder of the activity. I like to pause to have class discussions throughout these activities so that students can hear their classmates’ strategies and reasoning.
