Veterans and Math-Ms. Mallory’s 6th grade math students wanted to honor Veterans and apply it to math. The class is currently working on a Ratio/Unit Rate and Percent Unit.

Ms. Mallory’s 6th grade math students wanted to honor Veterans and apply it to math.  The class is currently working on a Ratio/Unit Rate and Percent Unit.  Surveys were sent home to all students’ family asking for names of any family member, past or present, who was or is in the military.  The students created a power point presentation of all the veterans with the names of the student they are related to.  A table was created with the number of veterans in each branch of the military.  Using this data, the students wrote their own math problems that relate to the current unit.  The veterans were invited to view the presentation and were given a flag lapel pin honoring veterans.  Students worked and completed the problems during math class on Friday.
