Bottle Flipping Maths

This week during Maths in 1/2C and G we have been trying to work out which drink bottle in our class is the best bottle to flip.

The students worked in groups and used 5 different drink bottles. They flipped each bottle a certain number of times from the same position, collected data around how many times the bottle landed and discussed the variables that could be affecting their results.

The students used the data they had collected and identified the best bottle to flip. Using the best bottle they then tried to work out what is the best amount of water to have in that drink bottle to successfully land as many flips as possible.

It was certainly lots of fun and it was great to see so many excited faces during Maths this week!
