Slurpee Adventure

Yesterday, Roland Dargis (a colleague of mine in the math dept. at Cold Lake HS) and I set out to create a Dan Meyer style video for the Gr.12 unit on Permuations and Combinations. Our idea was that we could videotape ourselves filling up slurpee cups and then have our students try to determine how many possible different combinations of slurpees could be created.

Here is our final product

If you look at the end of the video, you will see that we have a shot of all of the possible choices of slurpee flavors , cup sizes and prices. This allows for a lot of extension activities.
