Traffic Survey Fires Up Math Lesson


November 6, 2012 - Teacher Nancy Perron's grade 3 class at St Bernadette Catholic School recently completed a traffic survey on Auger Street in Sudbury. It was all part of a hands-on lesson in math. Students brainstormed possible makes, colours and types of vehicles they might see and then sorted them into categories. They then took their worksheets to the street. Despite the cold, every student captured their findings. When they returned to their classroom, they tallied their results. "Every student had the opportunity to interpret their data and represented their results in bar graphs," said Mme Perron. "This survey provided an authentic learning experience and supported their learning of data management in a fun way."
