Welcome to our state research project in math! Today, we're going to embark on a math adventure where we will use our problem-solving skills to discover some interesting facts and figures about our state.

Our challenge for today is to use various mathematical concepts such as fractions, decimals, and percentages to analyze different aspects of our state. We will be using real data and information such as population, area, and landmarks, to create charts and graphs that visually represent our findings.

First, we'll start by discussing what makes our state unique. Is it the state bird? The state flower? Or maybe the state emblem? Whatever it may be, we will apply our math skills to create a pie chart to show the percentage of people who know what our state is famous for.

Next, we'll set out on a journey to explore our state's geography. We'll use Google Map to calculate the distance between major cities and create a line graph to show how far apart they are. We'll also use fractions and decimals to compare the size of our state with other states in the country.

Finally, we'll discover some interesting landmarks and their significance in our state. We'll use percentages to show the popularity of each landmark among tourists and compare the number of visitors to each landmark over the years.

By the end of this lesson, you will have not only learned interesting facts and figures about our state, but you will have also developed your problem-solving and critical thinking skills in math. Let's get started on this fun and exciting adventure!
