I noticed that there were 3 glasses shown and 4 graphs shown. I was wondering if a graph went with each glass and if the graph represented the shape of the glass or the liquor it could hold. I was also wondering why there were 4 graphs with only 3 glasses.
[...] teachers love noticing and wondering about math-y images like this: http://mathforum.org/blogs/pows/free-scenario-filling-glasses-wcydwt/ so get them doing it as a fun exercise, and then thinking about how it can help [...]
I wonder what crystalline imperfections give each glass their colors.
I wonder what exactly “height” refers to.
I wonder what shape glass the extraneous graph refers to.
I wonder if there’s any connection between the graphs and glasses at all?
I noticed that there are more height vs time graphs than there are glasses.
If height refers to the height of a fluid in a glass, then I noticed that each glass would then match to a height vs time graph.
I noticed the lines on the graphs are different colors.
