How Many Hot Dogs Did We Order Last Month?

mentor-college-intermediate-division-techStudents in Mrs. Sarna’s Grade 6 Mentor College Intermediate class had the opportunity this week to integrate math and computer technology. The students have been studying data management in their recent math classes and have implemented their learning by designing a kids’ menu that reflects the data they have been collecting. Through the use of Excel, students were able to enter, organize and sort data and then use the data to create graphs and determine averages and trends. Seeing the data presented in a variety of ways helped the students solidify their choices and design of their proposed children’s menu.
