Today in math we worked with proportions to figure out an estimate of the number of fish in our “Chesapeake Bay”. Students used bowls of goldfish crackers and tagged a few fish by replacing them with pretzel fish. Then they worked through steps of capture-recapture to determine an estimate of the number of fish in their “Bay”. What a GREAT experiment and super math work! Keep it up Seventh Grade!
