PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Gapminder.com is a very powerful data analysis tool that uses the most current data to allow everyone to look at trends within our world. It is a great learning tool, but if your students are anything like mine, they need direction and structure. I created this lesson to help my students understand this powerful tool at the basic level so that we can use it to investigate statistics in my Algebra 1 class. This will also help cover S.Q.2 from the Common Core for Algebra 1. You can find my complete scope and sequence at http://algebra1teachers.com, please come by a take a look!

Please check back soon for lessons on box and whisker, measures of central tendencies, line of best fit, correlation vs. causation, correlation coefficient, standard deviation, and outliers. Or simply hit follow to be notified when I post them.

You will need computers for every student for this activity to run effectively. You may also want to print a reference sheet for each student from www.gapminder.org/world depending on how well your students understand technology.

Students will:
• Understand the graphical representations within Gapminder.org
• Create a table from the data
• Identify independent and dependent variables
• Understand the meaning of individual points on a scatterplot
• Make conclusions and justify them using data from a graph

I hope you find gapmaster as useful as I have. If you use the introduction to gapmaster.org activity, please leave feedback. I would love to hear from you. Thank you.
