Description:
Are you looking for ways to add meaningful connections to your math lessons? Come explore the longevity of life of U.S. Presidents. Data analysis can be relevant and interesting for your students as they investigate meaningful questions. We will discuss fun facts and historical data as we examine the ages of Presidents at their death in Stem-and-Leaf and Box-and-Whiskers plots. We will also share other web resources for data. (BYOD for research and graphing data.)

Goals:
1. Communicate the needs of young adolescents to a broader audience, including community groups, professional groups and retirement associations. 2. Disseminate middle level education research and best practice in user friendly ways to a variety of groups including young adolescents, teachers, parents and community groups.

Description:
Several years ago our middle level teacher preparation program established an informal service learning mentoring project at a diverse, Title I middle school. Over time, that relationship has grown into a synergestic, school-based partnership that specifically prepares pre-service teachers to work effectively with young adolescent learners from diverse backgrounds.
