Chalkboard Countdown Timers

And, rather than keeping ’em to myself, I figured I’d upload them to YouTube and share them here.

The 22:30 is a bit of an oddball. It works out to 1/4 of 90 minutes, which is how much time CompSci AP-A students have to solve 4 free-response questions. I use a 22:30 timer quite a bit with my class to get them used to the pacing for their AP exam in May.
