Data Game at Four Rivers

The Data Game project team headed to the Four Rivers Charter School this December to introduce Data Game activities to their students.

These students are eighth graders. Considering what the work they had done that semester on linear relationship, we decided that our "Chain Saw" game would be a good fit for this group of students. The classroom sessions were held on December 19-22, 2011. Students engaged in mathematical and data analysis activities that organised around the chain saw game with the aims to help them better understand data in addition to strengthening their prior knowledge in Linear equations and Linear relationships.
