★ The Tooth - Students will use a formula and measurements from the tooth to determine the age of the individual.
★ The Femur - Students will be given a sample dataset of human heights and femur lengths. They must produce a linear regression model relating femur length to height. Students will then have to measure the femur found at the site (photo provided) and use their regression model to predict height.
★ The Pelvis - Students will use a formula and measurements of the pelvis to determine sex. There is the option to replace this task with one that uses z-scores and the normal distribution. Two worksheets for the pelvis are therefore provided but only one worksheet is needed for the activity.
