The grade 9s recently worked collaboratively to build a mini foosball table in their math class. The mini foosball table required specific constraints such as size, function, and appearance. Using their equation solving skills, the grade 9s first determined all the appropriate dimensions of the mini foosball table their group will build. Next, each group discussed and planned how they will build their foosball table. The grade 9s dedicated many hours into building some very well designed mini foosball tables. Throughout the entire process of building the foosball tables, the grade 9s, in addition to applying math skills, they developed planning, designing, problem solving, conflict resolution, and leadership skills.
