#### The Giant Hole In Guatemala City This is the scene in Guatemala after a 200ft deep sink hole swallowed up a three-storey building. The enormous crater appeared in the Central American country's capital, Guatemala City, as it was being ravaged by torrential rain and mudslides during Tropical Storm Agatha.

#### In 2010, a huge sinkhole swallowed a 3-story building in Guatemala. The hole is about 18 metres (60 feet) wide and 30 stories deep, according to a National Geographic article. Itâ€™s thought to have been caused by a ruptured sewer line, but no one knows for sure.

#### Giant 200 Feet Hole Opens Up in Guatemala, Guatemala City - Last Monday, May 31, 2010, a ravaging tropical storm named Agatha swept across Central America bringing torrential rain that killed more than 100 people & opened a 200 ft. (60m) deep sinkhole in Guatemala City which reportedly swallowed up a three-storey building. Witnesses claim at least one man went down the hole.

#### Lying Activities, Ideas, Simplify Radical, Buckets, Math Classroom, Group Work, Solving Quadratic, Solving Correct, Algebra

#### Simplifying Radicals: Bucket O Lies - love

#### This is a great idea to use for assessment, group work, and to promote critical thinking because the students have to evaluate each statement for its accuracy and be able to decipher which statements are right or wrong and why.

#### solving quadratics via factoring -- Bucket O Lies. Some problems were solved correctly. In groups, students figure out which ones are solved correctly

#### Bucket O Lies activity with quadratics - can work for any topic. I love it! For formative assessment, I created 12 quadratics that were solved (factoring, completing the square, and quadratic formula). Some were solved correctly, others were solved incorrectly. In groups of 4 the students had to sort through the papers and decided which ones were correct and for those that were incorrect, they were to indicate where the person went wrong. You can check out those problems here. After all groups were finished we looked at each problem one-by-one. I called on students randomly with the name cards (popsicle sticks). I was surprised by how many misconceptions that were uncovered by doing this. One student asked, "Can we make our own bucket o lies?'' My response, "You bet! It would count towards High Performance." I'm getting it now. You know, the whole being-a-better-teacher thing. Standing up front lecturing everyday stinks. But this lesson had the students working together, analyzing problems, justifying their reasoning, responding to other students' ideas, and of course learning the lesson objectives.

#### solving quadratics via factoring -- Bucket O Lies Think this would be great for my low performing ALGEBRA I students. Might put the 4-5 high performing in a separate group with their own bucket.

#### This pin is a good model of multi-step experiments using a tree diagram. It lists all of the possible outcomes that can be derived from the type of sandwich, sides, and drinks chosen when there are multiple options. Using a tree diagram helps in visualizing multi-step experiments. It allows you to actually see all of the possible combinations. In this case, step one is choosing a sandwich, step two is choosing a side, and step three is choosing a drink.
