Then, leave a question or comment for the mathematician(s)!
What do you notice or wonder in their investigation?
I thought that Jeremy put a lot of thought in his demonstration. His comment about quality in the analysis of his findings was especially thought provoking. May Fortin
Jeremy Glodgett was very informative with his presentation. He was very clear and easy to follow. He had good examples and also come to the conclusion that the lowest price is not all the best deal. Great job Jeremy!
Great job with your presentation, J.J.! It seems like you put a lot of hard work into this project. Good luck and I hope you win!
I found Jeremy's information on rates very informative. He obviously put a great deal of effort into his project. I will be looking at buying dog food in a new light. Thank you Jeremy.
I really liked Jeremy's presentation because it was set up like a scientific study, and he was very through in his search to find the cheapest dog food! I especially liked the conclusions he made because he made judgements that went beyond the hypothesis and were applicable to everyday life!
WOW! I was so impressed by Jeremy's work ethic and the thought and detail he put into his presentation. I liked how Jeremy went further in the hypothesis and also showed the process of finding the results. I appreciate how Jeremy made a connection with using rates and unit rates. Amazing! His presentation was clear, easy to understand and focused. Fabulous work Jeremy!
First off, that’s a great looking Beagle! Good job incorporating a real life problem into the project! What a great skill to learn that you can utilize in life situations to come! I’m very impressed with the documentation. This young man is definitely going places putting this type of effort into a project. Great presentation, documentation, and conclusions drawn!
Great job on this project! Now I’m going to teach my kids how to figure out the unit cost of items at the store. I like the way you did your conversions.
Well explained and broken down Jeremy. I break down the cost of items per pound or ounce when I go shopping all of the time. This method will help you make good decisions when you purchase all kinds of products and save you lots of money.
