MESA Accessibility Supplement: Investigating Apples

In this unit, students use a balance beam to measure the mass of apples and use statistical tools to analyze data and present it graphically. The measurement activities will pose challenges to students with upper body mobility impairments, the mathematics may present challenges to some students with learning disabilities, and the graphing activities may require accommodations for students with visual impairments. Have students work with partners or in small groups so that each student can contribute according to his or her strengths. For information on suggested accommodations, select an activity below.
