How much pee is in this pool? 

A Canadian chemist, Xing-Fang Li, has found a marker for urine that chlorine doesn't disguise. In this activity, students calculate volume of several pools, change that cubic foot volume to gallons of pool water, and try to approximate how much urine is in each pool. 4.MD.C, 5.MD, 6.G.A, 6.RP.A, 7.RP.A, 7.G.B

 Deer tick

It's tick time again 

With the start of summer and wonderful outdoor activities, it might be good to examine the growth of Lyme disease and to recognize its carrier, the deer tick. Hopefully this math activity will alert your students to the care that should be taken when outdoors. With Excel graphing or graphing by hand, use our data from the CDC to find the growth of Lyme in your state and engage in hypothesizing why that growth or decline might be occurring. 5.MD, 6.SP, 7.RP, 7.SP
