I have a Mathematics degree and Master (Word Problem in Groups) from University of Balearic Island (UIB). Now I'm secondary teacher teaching adults. I'm looking for non-magisterial activities and their integration in class. My aim now is to *build* thinkers in my classroom. Dan Meyer [blog.mrmeyer.com/] has impact on me

On Friday Feb 2nd, students do Dan Meyer's Graduation activity [101qs.com/3530]. Their reasoning is to count time to pronounce names of 2, 3, 4 and 5 words and to count time between two graduates. Problems encountered: 1) missing people, 2) speakers omit words in names of 3+ words, 3) we have no time for seeing how much time speaker uses to pronounce names of 4 and 5 words [we use affine extrapolation for approximate it]. Final result: 12% of error of approximation #3-act
