These statistic tasks by Suzanne Buras are perfect for math centers, individual or partner work. Katrina and Company, Tasks 1-5, consists of 5 activities dealing with analyzing data related to the 2005 Record-Breaking Hurricane Season of 27 named storms.
Students use charts to record information on 4 questions: (1) What percent of storms were in each category? (2) What percent of storms made landfall in the U.S.? (3) What percent of storms lasted the longest? and (4) What percent of storms formed in each month of the hurricane season? Students find both counts, fractions and conversion to percents and then create circle graphs and bar graphs.
NOTE: The needed Hurricane Data Cards are included with the packet. Short PowerPoint also included.
