An Olympic Sized Pool and 2 Liter Bottles

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through September 30th, 2022. Join today!
 
 

Objective

Students will find the information they need to calculate how many 2 liter bottles they could fill up using the water in an olympic-sized pool.

Interestingly, there is no "official" volume of an olympic-sized pool! Students have to make a choice – how deep will their pool be.

Inspired by Stupid Calculations.

Steps

  1. First, students will need to figure out how much water is in an olympic-sized pool.
  2. I reveal my calculations - which may or may not be the same as what students arrived at. And that's ok!

The registration window closes on September 30th, 2022
