2. Estimate how much saliva you produce in 1 hour. 1 day. 1 week. 1 year. 3. How big is a swimming pool? How much water do you think it holds? 4. Calculate the volume of a swimming pool that is 50m x 25m x 2m. (Olympic average.) 5. How much saliva do you think is in a single cubic meter of water? 6. If the volume of an Olympic Pool is 2,500,000 L, how much saliva does one person produce each day? How to use this as a mini-lesson? You have to decide how much freedom to give your students and how structured you want this to be. It could be a great inspiration for how to find the volume of a rectangular prism (true swimming pools that are more like trapezoidal prisms), or how to convert between metric and English measurements, or how to convert between large and small numbers, or even how to use scientific notation appropriately. Mini Lesson 1: Volume Let's find the volume of different pools! (Olympic, neighborhood, backyard pools)

Neighborhood: 25m x 10m x 1.5m (Kids could find out their own measurements!)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
