Rational numbers mini-project that students will enjoy! I was inspired to create Rational Me after watching a video about the elements present in the human body. I thought it would be great for students to learn about these elements and to calculate how much of the elements are in their own bodies. For two years, I had students create large posters to represent their results, but this year, I created a version of the project students could keep in their notebooks.
Students complete this mini-project after our lessons on rational numbers. I wanted to keep it simple and interesting. This project covers the following topics:
Converting rational numbers
Representing percents using circle graphs
Representing percents using visual representations
This project includes instructions, four different types of activity pages, and an image of a completed sample. I hope your students enjoy exploring with Rational Me.
