Sidewalk Survey!

Our seventh grade class recently learned how to obtain reliable information that accurately represents the population in question.  We are going to apply this knowledge during our next problem-based learning project.  In the future, our school is going to help apply for a “Safe Way to School” grant for the neighborhoods of Amherst.  Part of the application process is surveying the public to determine the need/support of the things this grant would supply.  We began by drafting a survey, and determining how we would make it available to the public so as to receive the largest amount of responses possible, making our sample size truly representative of the population of Amherst.
