M3 Math - Digging For Data

ALERT students are exploring data collection and graphing. Students have been completing a Survey Project. Each partnership decided on a question to ask the class. We used Google forms to survey our ALERT friends. We collected our results on a Excel spreadsheet and created graphs to present our findings. We collected all kinds of interesting data; favorite fruit, favorite color, favorite Related Arts activity, favorite video game, etc. Ask your students about the Mystery Graph activity!
