Olympic Sprint Records: Using Decimals to Understand and Predict Records

This activity uses actual data from runners between 1896 and the 2012 Olympics to create a hyperbola through "curve fitting." it is an excellent activity for 5th through 9th grade.

In this video, learn how using the Pythagorean theorem can help people solve real-world problems involving distances. In the accompanying classroom activity, students develop their problem-solving, spatial reasoning, and geometry skills by putting the Pythagorean theorem to use. After a brief discussion about how to use the theorem to find the distance between two points on a coordinate grid, students partner up and play a game in which they generate (and then calculate the distance between)…
