Thoughts from a reflective educator.
I played ultimate tonight, and we usually keep score with shoes. Our normal scoring system is to count in base 5. Tonight, I tried to use binary, but at half-time I switched back to base 5 when most of our team struggled to read our score quickly.
I took some pictures of the arrangement of shoes during the game (when I wasn't playing).
I can imagine some investigations could be made out of these photos.
