Performance tasks require students to use learned skills in a real world setting. This task requires students to collect data about their neighborhood's (classroom's) favorite cupcake flavors for their parents' cupcake business. They must also graph that data and write a report for their parents using the collected data. The students are also required to come up with a new flavor and take a poll of the neighborhood's willingness to try the new flavor. This task is based off a 2nd and 3rd grade data standard, but could be used for practice in 4th grade as well. Students also will be incorporating writing into this math task.
