Our second annual Helping Hands Day is quickly approaching.  Our class will be hard at work planting a Memorial Day garden at the Falmouth Public Library followed by a cookout at Mullen Hall with other Helping Hands participants and their families.  Lets hope for good weather on Friday!

Learning about minimum, maximum, and the middle (aka the median)

Author: kkruse  //  Category: Math, Uncategorized

The kids learned all about how to figure out the minimum, maximum, and middle of a set of data by measuring their head sizes and their arm spam.  They then had to get themselves in order from the minimum (smallest) to the maximum (largest) size.  The HUGE challenge was to do it without any talking.  This was challenging at first but they quickly got the hang of how to communicate about numbers without any words.  Once they were in order, I had them sit down starting with the minimum and the maximum, the next minimum and maximum, until we got to the median value.
