Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates' representations and the strategies they used for comparing glide ratios.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Which tool do you think is the most useful for comparing glide ratios? Why?
  • Which tool would be the most useful for determining the distance a bird can travel before reaching the ground if you only know its starting height and glide ratio?
  • Which tool did you work from to make your graph?
