Day 42: Graphing Stories

We spent the rest of the period working on Graphing Stories. I had students describe the first few using only words then move into graphs. I also put up the page and had a random student pick whatever one they wanted to do.

Geometry wrapped up Hotel Snap. It was pretty chaotic and I struggled bringing everything together. The winning team had a score of $19,265 with the $1,000 bonus.
