For Mrs. Jensen's Algebra Class
Choose a topic you would be interested in finding data about (example: changes in animal populations).
Research and record your data (excel works great for this). You will need enough information to produce at least 4 graphs.
Create a dot plot, a histogram, a box plot and a scatterplot to represent different aspects of your data.
Analyze your data to determine:
· The mean, median and mode.
· The standard deviation.
· The distribution of data using center and spread.
· If it fits the pattern of normal distribution.
· The form, strength and direction of the relationship.
· Are there any outliers? How do they affect your data sets?
· Is your data symmetric or skewed?
· Is your data linear? Exponential? Quadratic?
· Explain the meaning of the slope and intercepts within the context of your data.
Compare and interpret differences in two or more sets of data.
Create a presentation using Emaze to represent your data.
Ideas for Data Collection
- Animal Population Changes
- Average Temperatures
- Rainfall in Different Areas
- Product Prices
- Salaries in Different Fields
