An Interesting Mother's Day Math Activity
Here is something fun that several our staff have done with their students. It requires a bit of research. Have students research the spending habits of people on this holiday. They can uncover simple to very complex data. Which set of data that you encourage them to use is up to your grade level. You may even want to cut this step out and provide them with the data. Once you have an agreed upon data set, have them create a data chart. The spending is normally in the high millions to billions. Have them create a Pie chart of this data. Once you have the charts created, take a class survey of what students will do for their moms. You can then compare the class to the general population through a number of different statistical techniques. Again, you can get as simple or as complex as you choose.
