Today, we read an interesting piece about inventions that missed the boat. Some things sound better than they actually are. One thing we read and spoke about briefly was invention contraptions made by Rube Goldberg. These inventions are complicated structures that do simple things.
Your homework is to answer the questions on page 20 of your textbook that follow the story. Also, for extra credit, you can investigate the Rube Goldberg website and print off one of his inventions.
