Title III Technology Literacy Challenge Grant

Here is a project that combines math and English. Class members read an article entitled "A Thirst for Competition" and conduct a school-wide survey to determine if their peers prefer Gatorade, Powerade, or All Sport. They then tally the results and use a computer program to graph the results.
