My class completed the Summer Jobs project and the students were really engaged in trying to figure out who to keep full time, part time and let go. While some students took seriously using mathematics to figure what students to keep, others students simply rearranged the numbers and selected the numbers based on what was on the chart. I feel to do justice to the problem and the class disscussion, an available spread sheet should be created so numbers can be manipulated and students can have immediate feedback on their selections. This way there can be more discussion on the fairness of their selections and students can justify their choices. Typed by Kelly, dictated by Harriet the hunt and pecker.
