Math 8 – Today was a shortened day. The fun part was going over rate questions and some students being unsure of heart rate before and after exercise. That led to us all taking our heart rate and then I got the students to run on the spot, do jumping jacks and then do burpees. We went around the room saying what our heart rate. Some students would say they lost count, at which point I would tell them that there isn’t a law against starting over.
It was all kind of fun, but the lesson did reveal that undercurrent of helplessness. I didn’t count right the first time, therefore I can’t do it.
