Students play a game in which they place beans on numbers that represent the sum of two dice. Each time a number comes up in a dice roll, a corresponding bean may be removed. The first person who removes all his beans wins the game. Students mathematically analyze the game to develop strategies.

We can't see inside our arteries to know how blocked up they are with fatty deposits without specialised equipment, but that doesn't mean it isn't gradually happening.

You may consider that your heart is healthy. What are your chances, as a member of the general population, of developing cardiovascular diseases now, next year or

2.2 Taking responsibility for your own learning

Not much of this unit conforms to the traditional pattern I mentioned earlier – the theory-example-exercise pattern. In particular, you will find you are expected to discover much of it for yourself. Why is this? This is a legitimate question and deserves a full answer. One year, a student at a residential summer school complained I had not taught him properly. I was, he told me, an expert and so why did I not demonstrate how to tackle the problem he was working on and pass my expertise on

Does Weight Matter?
Using the same method for measuring friction that was used in the previous lesson (Discovering Friction), students design and conduct an experiment to determine if weight added incrementally to an object affects the amount of friction encountered when it slides across a flat surface. After graphing the data from their experiments, students can calculate the coefficients of friction between the object and the surface it moved upon, for both static and kinetic friction.
