The MATHCOUNTS middle school competition team and the Math Video Challenge team used their knowledge about percentages, measures of central tendency, and predicting calculations as they competed in the sport of bowling.  As they bowled, the students practiced measuring outcomes for different scoring scenarios, inferred which measure of central tendency would be most important in a game of bowling, and calculated percentages of strikes for their individual and team scores. By doing this, the MATHCOUNTS team experienced the type of problem solving scenarios they will face in their January competition. The Math Video Challenge students developed great  ideas for their video to explain how to solve algebraic problems.
