This activity enables students to practice various skills such entering lists, comparing data, and utilizing statistical terms on the graphing calculator.
Before the Activity
Students will need to be familiar with statistical terms such as mean, median, mode, and range. They could also create a PowerPoint with the pictures of the various birds on the worksheet, and estimate the weight and wingspan before giving them the actual data.
During the Activity
Have students input the weight in grams in L1 and the wingspan in centimeters in L2 and graph.
After the Activity
Have students answer the question from the worksheet pertaining to the data. Students could also look up 10 other types of birds not listed and create a list and graph using that data and compare to their present data.
