Students are working with partners on projects for our new expedition. The math project involves finding as many statistics or social indicators as they can to measure progress on topics such as: Population Growth, Poverty, Hunger, Life Expectancy etc. Students and their partners will produce a poster demonstrating how progress is shown on this topic, graphs and key findings. This project will meet the learning target of determining if a mathematical relationship exists between two variables.

Please check your grades on infinite campus to see if you are missing any work or have a low ALEKS grade. Grades can be brought up by making revisions or doing extra work. Please see the instructor if you wish to bring up a grade. The next due date for ALEKS is Friday, April 27.
