In this puzzle game one has to position coloured marbles in the correct designated spot at the bottom of the play field. This is done by putting the marbles through a series of traps and slides.In the beginning the game is rather simple, but it gets more complex once in a while.Pretty addictive, but very hard some times!Great for a sunday afternoonby Latis

The challenge is to figure out where the marbles are headed next. Which funnel do you drop them down? I found myself tracing their path with my finger touching the screen, like I was reading a maze book.
During half term I had a really quiet week! Mainly because everyone went on holiday. I could have had the week off, but instead I used to it do a major clean and sort out of all the toys. It only took a few days to do, so in the remaining time I made BB a new wooden marble drop. I think there is something very hypnotic about watching the marbles drop down. BB also really loves using things like marble run to play with. The good thing about this marble drop is that I can leave it out all the time and he can play with it when he likes, without having to rebuild it.
I used a pencil to make a rough design, then completely ignored it when I started gluing things down. The most import thing to remember is to make enough room for the marble to fall through. As I went through adding new parts I would test it out to make sure that the marbles fell properly. I had to add a frame to the out side of the wood. This was because at times the marbles would simply bounce out. With the frame there, they would ricochet back in.
If you enjoyed making this wooden marble drop be sure to check out my other fun with marble posts. Plus if you have little ones who still put things in their mouths then have a look at my marble run with tapioca balls.
This is a crazy machine project for my Cub Scout Pack. This week we are making marble drops out of rolled up paper tubes, rubber bands, a tongue depressor and a paper clip. There is spring loaded release at the to of the first marble. The marble rolls down the first run and jumps across an open space to the catch of the second run. You can see it in slow motion in the video.
The top 2 cross braces form the rear top support for the first marble run. They should be spaced about 1"-1-1/4" apart. Since everything is held together with rubber bands its easy to adjust things as you go.
With a marbled effect and pretty pink hues, these drop earrings are sure to stun. A-wire hooks are nickel-free for sensitive ears.NICKEL-FREE: Our jewelry is nickel-free for sensitive skin.
Students will be asked to fill in the chart that compares the height that they dropped the marble from and the diameter of the crater made. After the students have done their measurements they will be asked to graph their results so that they can visually see the comparison between the heights of the drop and the diameters of the crater.
Overall, this activity ran smoothly. Students seemed to understand the concept of layers and had tons of fun dropping the marbles into the containers. Students also grasped how to measure using the metric system well and were able to translate their data into graphs. The students brought prior knowledge about the moon and some of its properties, which aided in the overall learning of the students. I found that the poster was particularly helpful to our lesson because we were able to reference it while explaining the layers of materials that we were working with. A visual aid is definitely a "must do" for this activity because not only is it helpful for the educator but it also caters to the visual learners and ESL students, giving them a picture to help explain the concepts.
However, we did find that the size of the marbles seem to have an impact on the size of the crater made. Students were dropping smaller marbles at higher heights, yet the data showed that the larger marbles dropped at lower heights had larger craters. This could be potentially confusing for some students when it comes to graphing the data especially if it is a young group of students. I would suggest that when doing this lesson marbles of the same size are used unless the effects of the size of the marble can be incorporated into the lesson.
Homemade gifts of gratitude are ideal for grandma & grandpa, especially for Grandparents Day (September 13). These personalized magnets look like water drops, but create a familiar splash when filled with the faces of grandchildren.
The self-coating process of solid particles over a liquid drop is important for the formation of a liquid marble. Generally, some external forces such as rolling or flipping are used to cover a drop by small particles. In this work, it is observed that flaky copper powders can spontaneously spread over the planar water surface and form a dense flat cluster with a fractal dimension of 2. Moreover, flaky copper powders can cover the water pendant and sessile drops spontaneously and rapidly. This powder-coated drop can roll on an inclined plane at a relatively high speed. However, spontaneous self-coating disappears for spheroidal copper powders. To explain our observations, the shape factors of particles are introduced into the spreading coefficient S for powders on the liquid surface. The flaky powders have the lowest shape factors and therefore spontaneous self-coating formation, with S > 0.
In an earlier experiment, participants played a perfect information gameagainst a computer, which was programmed to deviate often from its backwardinduction strategy right at the beginning of the game. Participants knew thatin each game, the computer was nevertheless optimizing against some beliefabout the participant's future strategy. In the aggregate, it appeared thatparticipants applied forward induction. However, cardinal effects seemed toplay a role as well: a number of participants might have been trying tomaximize expected utility. In order to find out how people really reason in such a game, we designedcentipede-like turn-taking games with new payoff structures in order to makesuch cardinal effects less likely. We ran a new experiment with 50participants, based on marble drop visualizations of these revised payoffstructures. After participants played 48 test games, we asked a number ofquestions to gauge the participants' reasoning about their own and theopponent's strategy at all decision nodes of a sample game. We also checked howthe verbalized strategies fit to the actual choices they made at all theirdecision points in the 48 test games. Even though in the aggregate, participants in the new experiment still tendto slightly favor the forward induction choice at their first decision node,their verbalized strategies most often depend on their own attitudes towardsrisk and those they assign to the computer opponent, sometimes in addition toconsiderations about cooperativeness and competitiveness. 041b061a72
