Using the stacking of nested Styrofoam cups, the paper constructs a mathematical model and explores it through simulations, all in Excel (prior experience unnecessary). This paper connects mathematics to measurement and measurement error via a "Click-and-think" engaging pedagogy using predict, test, and analyze by means of an interactive Excel spreadsheet or Excelet. The paper examines questions for student assessment of the model and error as well.
