I wrote about planning for this Legos lesson here. We really needed more pieces as a few of the students found the maximum profit within the first 5 minutes. I didn’t tell them that they did, so they continued to try. Then, I put the kids in groups of 3 and asked them to pool their Legos together to answer the same question of how many tables and chair should they make to maximize profit.

My MathCounts elective kids played 7-by-7 Hex today. They wanted to start a tournament!
