In advance of the exercise, you will need to prepare the coins and print the required forms.

  • Four Coins per each 4-8 people – Coins from any currency that are capable of spinning are acceptable. The key is to have the same combination of coins for all teams.
  • Timer – Any timing device that tracks in minutes and seconds works. Participant smart phones are often the best option.
  • PDSA Tracking Form – Use a PDSA tracking form to encourage participants to complete the full four part cycles and experience documenting their tests. It’s important to include prediction as part of the plan.
  • Run Chart Form to Measure Time– track time in seconds and plot data by hand.

Handouts may be distributed at the start, but withhold the coins until you are ready to begin.
