Seventh graders at Zemmer Middle School are growing zinnia flowers from seed for a math project. Students planted seeds into cups and are measuring their growth over the next few weeks. They will plot their points on a graph and find the line of best fit to write the slope-intercept linear equation that matches their plant’s growth (remember y = mx + b).
When the students are all finished, and the chance of frost passes, they will plant their flowers out in front of school this year to add a splash of color at Zemmer’s entrance.
Great job students and staff!
