Trying to find math inside everything else

No Better Feeling

At the beginning of yesterday’s lesson, I threw up this monster of a problem:

I told my students that, by the end of the lesson, they would be able to solve it. They flipped and freaked out. “No way, Mr. Cleveland, not going to happen.”

In all 4 sections, 1 hour later, every student correctly solved the problem. And they were all so proud of themselves for doing so. There’s no better feeling than that.
