Filling the Pool

This Filling the Pool activity & project also includes:

Get your swim trunks on because it's time to start filling up the pool for spring time! Let your mathematicians calculate the volume of the pool so Max and Joey know what time the pool will be full based on the water flow. There are multiple solution options for finding the end time (when the pool is full) including a chart, a formula, and calculations. The activity includes teacher notes and follow-up questions to change the level of difficulty and to create a discussion after everyone has completed the task.
