You might not think manure is fodder for practical math applications, but it is! Among other approaches in a diverse resource, your class explores the chemistry of manure via the scientific method (though supporting materials for this part of the lesson are thin). The most thoroughly supported component is completion of a table that compares the typical amount of nitrogen found in the manure of a variety of livestock species, and determining the mean, median, and modes of their data. Answer key for the worksheet is attached. Strong background information, and a complete vocabulary list are included as well.
