Default Please help out my 7th graders!

My 7th grade students have a graphing project for their math class, and part of the project involves making graphs out of data that they collect. They've asked me to post links to their online surveys, so if you don't mind, take a few seconds and vote. If you don't find your preferred answer among the choices, feel free to just vote randomly. The project is due on Monday, so please vote before then. Thanks!

(I know there are a lot of them, but they're only one question each, and no individual student has given me more than two links.)

Excuse my rant, which follows.

Why the heck didn't Schiperke's make the dog breed list? Look at this face:

EDIT: Molly wouldn't stay still because she fears the camera, so no close-ups, however, I got these:





Resistance to petting them is futile!



Umm, one thing. It's not Caca-Cola. It's Coca-Cola.

Thin mints rule, except for my mom's chocolate-dipped trefoils. Dang, now I'm gonna have to do downstairs.

Yeah...did I point out that all surveys were developed by 7th graders, and all spelling is theirs?

(Okay, except "ambidextrous," because I was showing that kid how to set up a survey and I typed it in for her.)

Some of my favorites weren't included either. And I was annoyed with the Girl Scout Cookie survey kid, because she didn't offer to sell me any.

Hey, there's a basketball team called the Mavericks?
I completely and totally did not know that.

Really.

Newfies are cool. A friend of my mom breeds them for show. Really big, though.

It is as far as I'm concerned.

Dallas, I think -- expansion club. They've been around for a while.


And shouldn't "schipperke" have two 'p's?

My dog is a Saluki....but no-one's ever heard of those! Wow, we didn't get to do these surveys in year seven...the closest thing we did was reading a newspaper and counting the number of letters in a word, words in a sentence and sentence in a paragraph, then work out a formula. ^^;;.

I love Molly the dog! :wink:

Thanks. She says "Feed me!" And, while I can pronounce it, I cannot spell the name of the breed. And judging from the common usage of the abreviation, skip, not many other people can either.

I've not heard of that breed...but she's cute anyway. Our dog says "Feed me" alot too...only not so today since she's just come back from the vets. :wink: But Schipperke is a good name for a breed of dog. ^^

"Skip" is actually pretty appropriate, since "schipperke" works out to "little skipper", coming from the breed's use as watchdogs on barges and canal boats in its native Belgium.

DACHSHUNDS MADE THE LIST! WOOT! :twisted:

Anyways, some very good questions! But I have to admit I didn't answer any of the American sports ones-I don't know American sports. Usually I'd just mess up the answer, but these are 7th graders-I can't lie to 'em!

(I hope that changes before I have kids...)

I have a feeling you don't have to worry about those questions. I'm a teenage male, and I don't know, so I wouldn't worry.

My teenage male friend once sewed through his finger on a Brother sewing machine and didn't worry, so I won't think I will, either. :wink:
