The graphs that we made are describing how much water can fit on either side of a penny (heads and tails). We made a Box and Whisker Plot, Bar Graph, Stem and Leaf Plot, and we then interpreted our data. This helped us practice choosing and then making the appropriate type of graph. First, we each did 10 trials on either side of the penny. Then, we put the data in order and interpreted the mean, median, mode, and IQR. Finally, we made all of our graphs and plots on butcher paper.

After reading the Gingerbread Man and discussing the Depth & Complexity of the story, students were challenged to build a bridge for the Gingerbread Man to cross. Students were given one index card. They had to design the bridge to hold the most gram stackers. Our strongest bridge held 390 grams!

Hey guys! So, we were reviewing graphs and we actually got to make our own line graph and make up a story to go with it. This helped us realize how graphs show things over a spread of time. We used Create-a-Graph to accurately plot our data. I’m kinda grateful for the review, because I kept mixing up line graphs and line plots. (;

Can you figure out how this crystal ball gives the correct symbol each time you click it? Go here to give it a try.
Our Hypothesis was that the Ghost Whisperer works because every time that we follow the instructions correctly, our answer is a multiple of nine. Every multiple of 9 is always the same symbol except for 90 and 99 (90 and 99 are never an answer). Each time that you press the crystal ball, it is the symbol of 9’s multiples. As you can see, we have an elaborate answer to the question, How Does Crystal Ball Work?

Fourth graders were challenged to use their geometry skills to create their "Dream Mini Golf Course." They had to include 5 holes, 4 displays of parallel and perpendicular lines, 2 of each type of angle (acute, obtuse, right, straight, and reflex), and a variety of 2-D shapes. Then they had to show the angles of the shots made in their course displaying 63, 97, 235 ,12, and 300 degree angles. Check out these awesome courses!

What’s up. Recently we made scatter plots about soccer players. First, we looked online and found our data. Next, we recorded our data in a google sheet. Finally, we created our scatter plot using the website Desmos.com.
Most of the players, no matter their height, do not make many goals. There were 4 main shooters on the team. I do not see any correlation between the height and the amount of goals made for each player. - Jess
I noticed the taller the player, the more they weigh. There is a positive correlation. - Aayan
I noticed that there is a positive correlation. The more games each player attended, the more goals they made. - Melody

Third grade has been working hard on Measurement. We have been learning customary and metric units. Our class explored length by estimating the length of parts of our body and then measuring them in metric and customary units.
We also estimated and weighed objects around the class using different tools.
