Count The Letters

Students perform activities involving ratios, proportions and percents. Given a newspaper article, groups of students count the number of letters in a given area. They use calculators and data collected to construct a pie chart and bar graph of the information. Each group shares his data with the class. They compare their data and determine letters that are used most frequently.
