The students in Ms.Goins' seventh grade class not only tested their basketball skills, but also used basketball to learn more about fractions.
The students were divided up into teams, and had two rounds to shoot. For round one, each student was allowed one shot, and in round two, each student shot twice. During each round, they had to keep up with their makes and misses. Using this information, they had to write a fraction for their makes and misses for their total amount shot as a team. Once they found their fractions, they had to change them into decimals. Last, they had to compare their fractions for round one and two makes, and round one and two misses.
The students had a blast learning about fractions and decimals!
