The EDP Cycle remains relevant! There is one phase of the grade 5-12 EDP cycle that every classroom participant can relate to, whether student or teacher, and that is “Build a model or Prototype.” In the K-4 EDP Cycle, this component is labeled “Evaluate.”
The “Build a Model or Prototype/Evaluate phase is continuously being applied in business using the word Beta test. Here is an example from current business news that fits with all of the snow of the Winter season.
The Snowbot is a square robot that shovels snow! Here it is in action!
Currently in development and Beta text by the company – https://www.thesnowbot.com/pages/become-a-beta-tester
Have you ever participated in a Beta test? It might be a fun class activity to show the Snowbot videos to Students who would serve in the role of Focus Group participants! What do you think about this and/or what other EDP applications come to mind when viewing the Snowbot videos?
Happy Fibonacci Day! Leonardo Pisano Bigollo (aka Leonardo Fibonacci) (1170-1250) created the Fibonacci Sequence in 1225 to solve the puzzle of rabbit breeding rates. It has since been found to occur widely in nature.
Today’s date corresponds to the first numbers of the Fibonacci sequence – 1 1 2 3
This video offers a exposition of the patterns recurring in the Fibonacci sequence
This video synergizes the number sequence to music.
There is a lively discussion already on Twitter at the hashtag #FibonacciDay and #MathMonday
One book that approaches Fibonacci and his life and work is the extremely interesting book called Finding Fibonacci by Keith Devlin
