Bar Graphs and the Super Bowl
Ms. Torres, one of two teachers in class 420, is using the enthusiasm of the Super Bowl as a way to teach math skills . "We are learning about bar graphs", she said, "and we are using the Super Bowl as a way to learn how to create bar graphs. Students will be turning player statistics and the results of the school's blog poll question into bar graphs." Jeremy R. can't wait to see all the bar graphs Ms. Torres plans to place on the hallway bulletin board. "I think the Giants are going to win the Super Bowl", he says, "they're my idols".
