Step 1: As you watch the first video, think about math: What math do you notice in the video? What do you wonder (math related questions)?

Step 2:Write at least one noticing and one wonder on the sheet (or in your notebook).

Step 3: Who did more jumping jacks? The kids combined or Mrs. Polay? By how many more? (Combined means together.) Estimate. What is your "too low" estimate, your "too high" estimate, and your "just right" estimate? Write them down.

Step 4: You can watch the rest of the video now. Then, use the picture below to decide what you know. (“I know Olive jumped ____ times, Salinger jumped ____ times, and Mrs. Polay jumped ____ times.”)

Step 5: Use what you know to figure out who jumped more - the kids combined or Mrs. Polay? Then figure out by how many more.

Show your strategy. Add labels to show your thinking. Use some of the tools or posters from our Math page. You can use Hanna's work from a previous task as a guide to know what we expect.

This task is very similar to one we did in class about how many more balloons were popped. Please review this poster, which shows the group strategies, and consider doing one of them. Click the image to enlarge.

Step 6: Tell someone about your work. If you are proud of your work and would like to have it posted on this website, upload a picture of it below. Images are moderated, so you will not see them right away.
