"The students are currently working on a Microsoft Excel Project (How Much Fat Do I Eat?)
in which they make calculations to determine how many calories and fat are contained in a Hamburger, French Fries and Milk Shake at various fast food restaurants.  The students first complete internet research to locate the information at McDonalds, Burger King, Johnny Rockets, Wendy’s and Sonic.  They then put the information in a spreadsheet and create formulas for their calculations. They also create two graphs (fat grams and calories) to show a graphic representation of their findings. I must say they are starting to take a serious look at how much fast food they eat because of the research and graphs they are conducting and creating."
