  • StandardsNEW

This STEM project with a math emphasis is great for middle school students to review ratios, rates, percents, and percent bar graphs! Use anytime, but especially during Spring and Easter time, this math mini project is a great way to bring some fun and real-world application into your middle school math classroom.

Students will plan a garden using realistic data researched from planting almanacs to decide where to plant tomatos, carrots, lettuce, and other veggies. Once students design their garden, they will use it to determine ratios and percentages based on the information.

This project is easy to differentiate for your students to make it more or less challenging. Take a look at the preview to see everything included!

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
Understand the concept of a unit rate 𝘢/𝘣 associated with a ratio 𝘢:𝘣 with 𝘣 ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, “This recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar.” “We paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger.”
