4/22- Paper Airplane
Look online to find instructions for a basic paper airplane, A frequent challenge in engineering is to do more with less. In this case, do you really need all the folds? Exactly how many folds do you need to make a working paper airplane? Now do it again, this time adding paper clips to your design. with paper clips, can you use fewer folds? What does this tell you about how paper airplanes fly?

4/15 - DICEY ODDS
Supplies and tools - pencil, scrap paper, 2 dice

Draw six squares with dots showing the six faces of a playing die. Now, next to each of these six squares, draw six smaller squares showing die faces. Now you can see all 36 possible combinations for rolling two dice (one-with-one, one- with - two, and so on).Count the number of combinations to roll each number from 2 through 12. These are the odds of rolling these numbers ( for example there are five different ways to roll a 6). Now roll 2 dice 10 times, keeping track of your rolls. Do the numbers you rolled match the odds of rolling those numbers? As the number of rolls increase does your data become closer to the odds?
