Circle Graph Project

Project:

Students chose a topic of interest to them, surveyed the rest of the class and then made a circle graph using this data. They were able to use computers to do this and could make their graphs look however they chose as long as they were clearly labelled and had all of the criteria of a circle graph. Students also had to draw conclusions about what their data showed.

Outcomes:

WA 20.11: Extend and apply understanding of representing data using graphs including:

  • bar graphs
  • histograms
  • line graphs
  • circle graphs.

Recipe Project

Project:

This project allows students to show their skills for unit pricing, unit conversions and temperature conversions in a fun way. Students get to go out and buy ingredients, bake some sort of food using a recipe, find out the price for one portion and convert to different units of measurement.

Outcomes:

WA 10.10: Apply proportional reasoning to solve problems involving unit pricing and currency exchange

WA 10.3: Demonstrate using concrete, and pictorial models, and symbolic representations, understanding of measurement systems including:

  • The Système International (SI)
  • The British Imperial system
  • The US customary system.
