Thursday March 3 a day in the math classroom

As spring break gets closer, the energy of the is students rising. As a team we decided to do an activity to review data as we have begun a new unit. We had the students do trash can basketball. They collected the data of their toss. After each team was done with their tossing of the basketball the students began to use the data. Students found mean, range, mode and the median. They then graphed their data and made observations about about the data. The students left with a smile on their face at the end of the period. Hopefully they will remember the vocabulary we reviewed more than the permission to throw paper in the classroom…
