What better way to move forward with Estimation 180, than with bacon, right? On the way to work one day this week, the idea popped into my head and here's what I was able to jot down in my notes.
Day 181: What's the net weight of all that bacon?
Day 182: How many strips of bacon come in that package? (video answer)
Think of a way you can connect this with Day181 and the net weight per strip.
Day 183: What are the length and width of a bacon strip BEFORE cooking it?
Day 184: What are the length and width of a bacon strip AFTER being cooked?
Yes, I didn't do thickness. However, I'm hoping you can connect Days 183 and 184 to talk about percent decrease, or other mathematical happenings.
Day 185: How long will it take to cook bacon starting with a cold skillet?
I enjoyed editing the video for this. The beginning is quiet and then the sensational sound of sizzling bacon comes roaring in after a few minutes.
Day 186: How long will it take to cook bacon with a PRE-heated skillet?
The time difference between Day 185 and Day 186 might not seem significant, but that's about 3 minutes earlier that you can begin your bacon consumption.
As you can see from my initial list, I do have more bacon ideas. However, I need some type of tool that weighs bacon. Who knows? I just might have to buy more bacon if I can get my hands on a triple beam balance or scale. If you have any other ways to incorporate bacon into estimation, I'm all ears in the comments. Thanks for all the positive feedback from John and Elizabeth. You made my day.
