Draining the Swimming Pool

Students solve equations. For this equations lesson, students estimate how long it will take to drain a container of water and write a representative equation. After solving the equation, they perform the experiment to see if the actual drain time matches their theoretical drain time. The experiment has replay value using different size tubing.
