About This Product

This fun math project includes clear step-by-step instructions to show your students how to make a circle graph. This is a great way to review several math skills while showing how useful they can be!

Tasks include:

- Writing a survey question: Your students learn to write a question that has exactly six possible answers.

- Collecting data: Your students can ask the members of your class their question. They collect data using a tally chart. They need to ask exactly 25 people.

- Recording results as a fraction: Once they have their data, they can turn each answer into a fraction with a denominator of 25.

- Calculating an equivalent fraction: Then, they calculate an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.

- Working with percent (written as a decimal): Finally, they turn that fraction into a percent in decimal form. They use this percent to multiply by 360 degrees in a circle (they can use a calculator for this part) to find out how many degrees each answer gets.

- Drawing angles with a protractor: They carefully draw the six angles in their pie chart, one by one.

- Labeling a graph: They label the graph to make it clear for others to read.

Grades to Use WIth:

This math project works well in the middle grades (4-8) when students know how to use protractors, calculate with fractions and decimals, and make graphs. It could also work well in a high school special education classroom.



Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.


Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.


Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
