Activity Overview

Basic activity of collecting data and graphing sets of data to see if there is a relationship.

Before the Activity

The day before the activity, collect various types of data from the class. The types of data selected for my class are listed on the attachment. These were just 6 easy things to collect. Once all the data was collected, I entered it into my ViewScreen calculator in Lists 1-6.

During the Activity

On the day of the activity, I transferred the data to the student calculator using the Unit to Unit link cables. After the students received the data, they followed the worksheet.

After the Activity

Review student answers:

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
