Heart Rate Math: Ratios & Proportions Activity with STEM Career Connection. Students learn about heart rate and the importance of this number in sports medicine. They compute their own heart rate after various activities and graph the results. They calculate the target heart rate and answer critical thinking questions. Perfect for middle school math!
I believe that this a wonderful bulletin board idea for my future classroom. This would be great to coincide with March Madness. This would be especially interesting for sports fans who are a little reluctant in math class.
