Step 1: As you watch the 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: The person in the video bounced the ball off his feet, head, chest, and knees. How many times do you think he can bounce the ball off his body before it hits the ground? Estimate. What is your "too low" estimate, your "too high" estimate, and your "just right" estimate? Write them down.
Step 4: Use the picture below to decide what you know. (“I know the ball hit his head ____ times, his chest ____ time, his knees ____ times, his right foot ____ times, and his left foot ____ times.”)
Step 5: Use what you know to figure out how many times the ball bounced off his body.
This task is about using different addition strategies that you learned this year. 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.
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.
You can also do an optional Flipgrid: Can you beat the juggler? Try it out! How many times can you bounce the ball off your body before it hits the ground?
Thanks for sharing your math thinking!
