Fermi Questions - Classroom Activities

______________________________________________

The number of classroom activities that can be built around Fermi questions are as varied as the questions. Collaborative learning, problem solving skills, estimation skills, and number sense are integral components of all Fermi exercises.

This section will provide anecdotal accounts of possible classroom activities that support and embed Fermi-type problem solving.

Teachers are encouraged to submit their own classroom experiences as they relate to Fermi questions. Submit a Fermi question and/or related classroom activity.
