Creating a Story & Graph

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.  (;

Ghost Whisperer

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?

Dream Mini Golf Course

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!

Real World Data & Scatterplots


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
