How long until they collide?

Show the beginning of the video. Stop the video at about 39 seconds. Take guesses from students.

After students have worked for a while and you have traveled around and selected some students and their work to share, show the rest of the video. This is also a great opportunity to talk about the dangers of distracted driving.


For members we have included a solution sheet and teaching suggestions.


Thanks to our friends Kim Lequire and Kyra Mercado for telling us about this video.

    The video does not work anymore. It says the video is “private”. Does anybody know where I can find the video?

      That video is now private, we put up a new, shorter version of the video that we found online.
