PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This interdisciplinary mathematics and humanities activity tasks students with data analysis, rounding numbers into the millions, creating fractions, simplifying fractions, comparing fractions, applying fraction analysis to authentic situations, and critical thinking about U.S. history.
The activity would work well in a unit about immigration, geography, fractions, and more!
It is also an excellent enrichment/extension activity for math students ready for a challenge.
Packet includes cover page with link and directions, work pages, and a teacher's answer key/guide.

Students first explore an interactive infographic to learn about immigration trends in the United States between 1880 and 2000.
Questions guide their exploration of particular immigrant groups over time.
Students look up specific immigrant population numbers in specific U.S. counties during particular points in history, then compare those immigrant populations with total populations.
Students use rounding to estimate and create fractions with these numbers.
After simplifying their fractions, students compare fractions of immigrant populations to discover when and where certain immigrants lived in the United States.
Finally, students ponder why these immigrant groups chose to live where they did when they did!
