At my district, students are to turn in a technology project every six weeks period. We just finished lessons on geometry and statistics. Does anyone have any ideas to share? Anything would be appreciated.

If you have Excel, you could show them how to calculate mean, median, mode, etc. with the function buttons. You could also use Excel to make charts of the data.

They could also use Paint or word to identify geometry concepts in a picture. Download pictures of famouse buildings, etc. Give them a list of geometry terms and have them label the picture with the terms.

I think these ideas could be adapted for lots of grades but what grade do you teach> Do you only teach math?

...5th grade math. This after 16 years of 6th grade math. I have other tech project ideas for other objectives, but wanted something different for these.

I'm going to check and see if our computers have Excel first thing Monday morning. I'll have them do a survey first and then they can calculate the median, mode and range. Thanks for your idea

Another possible use of Excel is to use it to mark and label things. For instance, students could mark and label parts of a flower or mark and label the states and capitols.
I have attached the step by step procedures to do this and a sample of one done with the parts of a flower.

My sixth grade students use this site to create the graphs for their science fair projects. They turn out quite nice, especially if you have a color printer.

if you type in simple technology projects for kids on the internet the boarder will come up or u can say recycling projects thats what I did so I built a car out of card board
