Do You Like to Pop Bubble Wrap?

Seriously, who doesn't like to pop bubble wrap?  I found this virtual bubble wrap online long ago, but I had no educational reason to share it with you- until now.

I recently came across a post at the Math Coach Blog about a graphing activity using the virtual bubble wrap. Student are divided into popping teams where one student pops the bubble wrap and the other student documents how many bubbles were popped at each 10 second interval (there is a counter and a timer at the bottom of the virtual bubble wrap).  The results are then plotted and graphed.  Make sure you read the original article here!

What a fun way to engage the students and to sneak in a little graphing practice, too.
