Mr. Shufelt’s 7th grade math class collected and analyzed data on different topics, then evaluated each other’s data presentations via a gallery walk. The students focused on mean, median, mode, and range, as well as well as populations and sample sizes.

Another project examined how many sports are played by members of the boys and girls modified basketball teams.
