One thought on “3 Act: Slow Your Roll”
I love this type of problem and really liked how they made it into a three act problem. It promoted some higher level thinking and had great opportunity for discourse in organizing data and solving steps. The three acts allow for focusing after starting with a wider open viewpoint, allowing the students to notice and wonder.
