# Up up up with cups 1

```Up, Up, UP with cups
Instructions: Working as a team you will build two structures adhering to this rule:
YOU CANNOT TOUCH THE CUPS WITH YOUR HANDS!
1. Use the yarn to stretch the rubber band around the cups.
2. Stack the cups into a 3 level structure (see pic above) and time your team each time.
3. Repeat 3 times and record your time in the chart below. Average your time.
Structure
1st try
2nd try
3rd try
Average
3-levels (3-2-1)
Instructions: Without using your hands, stack the cups to build a 6 level structure. Record your
data below and calculate the average.
ignore the pic with the yellow items on the right-stack them like one on left!
Structure
1st try
2nd try
6 levels (topbottom)
Analysis Questions:
1. What was your best time for the 3 levels?
3rd try
Average
2. Why do you think your group had a better time for that try?
3. What was your best time for the 6 levels?
4. Why do you think your group had a better time for that try?
5. How did your team improve each time you did the challenge?
6. Explain any difficulties you experienced with building your structure.
7. How were your results similar and/or different from other teams in the class?
Each group will write their average time for each activity on the board. Each student will then
create a graph that displays this data by creating either a bar graph or line graph. Be sure to
label the x and y axis and give your graph a title.
