Shipping Routes - Dan Meyer Three Act Task


The questions are simple: As two ships leave port at the same time but at different speeds, we wonder if they will ever meet again? And if so, how long will that take? The lesson hooks students immediately with the initial video clip of two simulated ships leaving port and separating from one another as they travel at slower rates.
