Determining Percent of Seed Germination
Students will conduct an experiment to determine the percentage of seed that will germinate in a given time frame. In this algebra/horticulture lesson, students will produce charts and graphs to represent the results of the experiment. This is an excellent example of a cross curriculum lesson that requires collaboration between a math and an agriculture teacher.
