Snapshot: 7B Shooting Percentages

As we start off the school year in 6th and 7th grade, the students jump start their brains with an eight-day run of multiplication math facts practice. As a way to add a little fun to necessary skill practice, we let off some steam by doing target practice with our crumpled up mad minute sheets. We keep track of the number of shots made. There was a healthy level of competition on which class did better on the paper shooting. 

This is LO's analysis of the shooting scores for both 6C and 7B. She was methodical and very clear in her process of showing how to convert the fraction into a decimal by division and then converting the decimal into the percent. It is a wonderful example of how to show your thinking and process.

The students were asked to determine which class "won." They came up with several different ways to to do their data analysis. Please ask your child to tell you all the different ways the data was processed!
