How to make a mobile (full video)

Suggested supplies (do not spend a lot of money!):
construction paper
bamboo skewers
string
glue

Requirements:
Congratulations, you have chosen to do the solve a linear equation mobile project!  In a nut shell this is what you are going to do.  You are going to make up your own linear equation (and solve it) on a mobile that is balanced (just like your equation).  your prioritise are as follows:

1) Write and solve your linear equation correctly showing each step as one piece of your mobile
2) Making your mobile balanced and able to move freely
3) Including a theme from one (or more) of your classes.  Sorry, lunch and recess do not count.
4) Making your project pretty



Grading:
If your solution to your equation is wrong, the best you can get is a Partially Proficient.

Advanced:
Six levels (5 sticks / 6 papers)
Equation requires 6 steps to solve and is done correctly
Mobile is balanced and moving freely
Writing is neat and easy to read
Papers have a recognizable theme and are aesthetically pleasing

Proficent:
Five levels (4 sticks / 5 papers)
Equation requires 5 steps to solve and is done correctly
Mobile is balanced and moving freely
Writing is neat and easy to read
Papers have a recognizable theme and are aesthetically pleasing
OR

Project 2 Tennis ball experiment:
Read pages 92 and 93 and fulfill all requirements of the project as outlined in the text.  All lab reports will be written to the lab report standard outlined in your science book in the general section.  It is also shown on Mrs. DuHoux's blog in the general section.  The connected math rubic is similar to the one for the previous report and is available o request.
