In Search of Real Data – Forehead Thermometers

Forehead Thermometers

I have used these little strips for measuring temperature after exercise of after being outside.  You can get the students to hold their breath and for short periods to see if they an raise the temperature.  Once again results can be processed in the normal way.

Another alternative is to create a heat map of the students in the room.  This leads onto a discussion of heat maps in general.

Our interest is to create a brilliant practical applied maths programme for teaching students who struggle with engaging in Maths. Our interests range from building bridges to making beautiful silver objects.
