Abstract

This paper presents a rationale and strategies for using cartoons as an activity for students to create their own inventions. Following the style of cartoonist Rube Goldberg, students can design (and even build) a crazy invention showing the most difficult way to achieve an otherwise easy task. This instructional strategy integrates math, science and technology in an imaginative and fun way! Copyright © 2002 Hong Kong Institute of Education.
