Old Faithful Geyser

This Old Faithful Geyser lesson plan also includes:

Such a creative way to teach and engage young mathematicians in learning about ratios! Mathematical calculations can be made, and a time frame can be calculated for the next eruption of Old Faithful (within 10 minutes) based on the duration of the previous eruption. There are many links to resources about Yellowstone, even one to a live feed to see Old Faithful erupt. Learners read information on FAQs. They then use this information to have a discussion on the mathematical data it contains. They will then do some mathematical calculations to determine unit rate based on the data given.
