BC Math Bridge Academy uses game to improve skills
Students in Brazosport College’s Math Bridge Academy program recently participated in a fun mathematical-based, problem-solving experiment. The game involved dropping dolls, secured by rubber bands, from a second story walkway at the College. Students had to calculate how many rubber bands would be needed to allow the doll to drop, but not hit the ground. The winner of the “Barbie Drop” contest was the student who came closest to the ground without hitting it. Students pictured participating in the “Barbie Drop” are, from left, Martha Estrella, Miguel Lopez and Hector Garcia .
