Cup Stacking Challenge

Mr. Fumi tasked his 8th grade math students with the cup stacking challenge this morning. Given a couple of white styrofoam cups, students first shared: What do you notice? What do you wonder? They then needed to figure out how many cups would need to be stacked to reach Mr. Fumi’s height. Students are studying linear relationships and rate of change, and this example is a fun way to explore these concepts.
