I have been watching the live broadcast of Felix Baumgartner’s freefall from the edge of space, and thinking of all the math involved in this project. How high will the balloon fly? How long will the fall last? How fast will he be falling? I could go on forever! I was wishing that today was a weekday, and we could share this experience as a class. Then I realized that I could use our class blog to connect with all of you!
So, here is a link to the live broadcast of the jump. What questions do you have, Grade 4?
For those of us who find this fascinating, here are some more great links with well explained information about today’s jump.
