As a Middle School math teacher, you may want your students to do projects sometimes, to keep them academically engaged. If you are teaching 8th graders you may expect your kids to employ more rigorous scientific controls, apply statistical analysis to their project results, and to graph their data. It is always good to encourage your students to engage in more independent inquiry by conducting original research. In line with this, I put together an excellent enlightening and appropriately rigorous 8th grade math project idea in this package. If you are an 8th grade math teacher, please feel free to use this simple project sample involving the use of mean, median and graphs as a project that would enrich your class.
