    On average, how many people will visit the pendulum exhibit in one week?

Act Two

  • 1.

    What other information do we need to know?

  • What are the Museum's hours of operation?

    What was the length of the video?

    If a person passes by the exhibit, does that count as a visit, or are they just passing by?

  • Teacher note
    In 30 seconds, there are 4 people that stop and look at the pendulum swing.

    The museum is open daily from 9-6.

Act Three

  • Teacher note
    The answer is approximately 30,240 visitors in one week!

    Is this a reasonable solution? Consider other aspects such as, time of day and day of the week.


  • 2.

    For an extension, consider asking how much money is generated from visitors to the pendulum!
