6. Central Tendency, Sampling & Misleading Graphs





For a technology extension this year, I am going to assign each student one concept from the project (mean, median, mode, range, histogram, circle graph, stem and leaf, percent). They will need to create a QR code that will give a brief description of the concept. We will display them in one spot, and they will all scan the different codes.

8. Digital Project Menus (this is a choice board):
I have created two project menus. As I create more, I will share them.

The actual menu can be found on my wiki. It is Percent Baseball.



9. CSI Math
At the beginning of the year, I did a CSI scale factor activity. I used this to create a CSI segment that I did throughout the year. Periodically, I would have CSI day. All the activities do not necessarily deal with math concepts, but they all deal with problem solving and paying attention to details. I found that the kids really liked it, and they were creating and using some great skills.

13. 2D and 3D figures Book
The longest part is cutting out all the figures. It would be great to have the students cut these out beforehand. This project took a full three days in my class (this includes the cutting time).
