Spartan Student Update

Back in November, Spartan Race challenged its racers to complete 30 burpees for 30 days.  Our class enthusiastically accepted this challenge; however, the challenge for us was not to simply do 30 burpees every day for 30 days.  We have discussed what being a Spartan means to us and it goes beyond the physical challenges.  This challenge included challenging our brains, not just our bodies.  As we completed our burpees, we graphed them in sets of 10.  When we were finished we were asked how many burpees we each did and how many our entire class did.  Here is how we completed this portion of our challenge:

1.  If you did 30 burpees for 30 days, how many burpees would you do in all?  



2.  We have 11 students and 1 teacher in our classroom.  If we all did 30 burpees for 30 days, how many burpees would we do altogether?  





AROO!!!
