This Fall our class continued working on learning to organize and display data on varoius
types of charts and graphs.They have also been studying the order of mathematical operations. They worked both in the
computer lab under the guidance of Mrs. Leary and in our classroom.
Each student wrote five interview questions to ask each other, and then recorded
responces on bar graphs and pie charts.Their questions ranged from "How long have you lived in the U.S.?" to "What is your
favorite animal ?" Some students decided to use clip art to make the charts more appealing.
Students were also introduced to, and have been playing a computer math game called How the West Was
1+3*4 which pits their own mathematical skills against the computer while reinforcing order of operations.
Additionally a few students enjoyed using Kidspiration to make beautiful time lines about their own
lives.They combined ESL, Social Studies and Math in this activity.
