We have been learning about simple machines and how they make work easier. Just for fun we have built Rube-Goldberg machines.
Rube-Goldberg machines are the opposite of a simple machine. They are complicated machines that do a simple task . My Rube-Goldberg machine is made up of 4 simple machines levels,wedge,wheel and axel. Our Rube-Goldberg machine is not quite finished but our team is trying their best. Our Rube-Goldberg machine is going to lift a toy car into the air.
At first we had to draw as many rectangles as we could think of that had a area of 12 square unit.
I drew 3 rectangles.
Then we had to answer a question-could we draw a square that had that area? The answer is no because the factors are not equal if the factors were equal it will be a square.
