Students were introduced to the average speed formula, which is distance divided by time.
During this bubble gum lab, students got to chew gum for thirty seconds, counting the number of chomps within that time.
Students conducted anywhere from three to five trials.
Students then had a choice on which trial time they wanted to use to determine calculations, such as number of chomps in a minute, number of chomps in an hour, and number of chomps in a day.
Students had to convert units to make their numbers work.
Furthermore, some students took an extra step and calculated the average number for a week, month, and year.
Finally, students got to read facts about bubble gum and would have their own contest on who could blow the biggest bubble.
