Reflection

Cooperative learning not only gives the teacher the

opportunity to facilitate, it also allows students to share
information, strategies and technique. I have learned
from experience that group work allows students with
learning disabilities to compete with other students in a
constructive environment. TEKS 6.1 for 6 grade math
requires students to comprehend and implement real
world applications.

Before I go away,
There is something I have to say,
Mike, good luck in your game today,
Hopefully youll beat Mater Dei.
Oh, by the way
Will you go to Sadies Hawkins with me next Saturday?

(Jordan, 2008)

This project will cover TEKS 6. 1

Mathematical process standards. The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and
demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to:
Note(s):

The mathematical process standards may be applied to all content standards as appropriate.
TxRCFP:
o Using operations with integers and positive rational numbers to solve problems
o Understanding and applying ratios and rates and using equivalent ratios to represent
proportional relationships
o Using expressions and equations to represent relationships in a variety of contexts
o Understanding data representation
TxCCRS:
IX. Communication and Representation

6.1A Apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.
6. 1B Use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a
plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving
process and the reasonableness of the solution.

6. 1C Select tools, including real objects, manipulatives, paper and pencil, and technology as
appropriate, and techniques, including mental math, estimation, and number sense as appropriate,
to solve problems.

6.1D Communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple
representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.

6.1E Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas.
6.1F Analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.
6.1G Display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical

Instructions:

In the U.S. and Canada, this concept was

popularized by establishing dance events
to which the woman invited a man of her
choosing, instead of demurely waiting for
a man to ask her. The first known such
event was held on November 9, 1938.
Within a year, hundreds of similar
events followed suit. By 1952, the event
was reportedly celebrated at 40,000
known venues. It became a womanempowering rite at high schools and
continues in some regional American
cultures.

Survey Analysis

Analyzing any survey, consists of a number of interrelated processes that

are intended to summarize, arrange, and transform data into
information. Assuming you need to analyze the data collected from your
survey, the process begins with a quick review of the results, followed by
editing, analysis, and reporting.

Interpreting Data Budget - Planning
Your fundraising committee needs money to cover the cost for a Sadie Hawkins Dance at the
school. In exchange for the high risk that administrator assume by investing in the student body, the

principal will require a return on investment of 25%. Results from survey shows that 20% of student
will not attend. Student will seek an \$800 dollar investment with a ROI of 1.%
