Jeanne Phillips Wiles

Through “Destination Calculation,” Ms. Wiles and Ms. Haislip use graphing calculators to improve students’ mathematical and communication skills. Students complete various projects including researching sports salary statistics, conducting motion and voltage investigations, and scrutinizing information to purchase a car. Students analyze data from each project, create graphs, and present their findings. To increase communication skills, students write explanations of their data analysis and compose weekly evaluations of their learning.
