This is lesson states that it takes two forty five minute class periods, but I found that it usually take three days, with the last day being a reporting day of results from the groups and comparing their outcomes of the lesson. This was a fantastic lesson providing students with many "aha" moments that bridged their misconceptions and develop deeper understanding of the Big Idea.
