To what extent does light affect the growth of corn?

This is a multi-day project integrating math and science.   If you need to see the raw data again here is the data for each class.  Morning JAMS & Afternoon JAMS.

A rough draft of the whole project is due Monday.  Student had time today in class to collaborate with like-mined scientists as well as begin step four on the handout.  Some students have decided to rethink the way they organized the data.  That is fine!  Data analysis is an iterative process.

Finish Reading and Make Your Own Data Set

Thank you so many families for returning the field trip permission forms.  This weekend a number of students have borrowed a textbook to finish reading about the role of stems and leaves in the health of plants.  In math students are thinking about the difference between mean & median with Make your own data set
