### Description

Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data I: Do woodpeckers prefer seeds or suet?

This is lesson 3 of a set of 5 instructional worksheets that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building students’ background knowledge. Rather than graphing meaningless data, your students will graph and analyze scientifically meaningful data based on real-world research on wild birds.

Skills and content for Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data I:

1. Scaffolding for making a double-bar graph; including guidance in choosing intervals and labeling axes.

3. Calculating averages and using data as evidence to support conclusions.

4. Experimental design analysis such as determining independent and dependent variables, variables held constant and forming research questions.

Instruction is built into the worksheet – Based on your students’ experience with graphing, analysis and understanding variables you can determine whether they can work independently or need direct instruction for this activity.

Continue to teach graphing, data analysis and experimental design, with increasing challenge, by getting all 5 mini-lessons:

1. Learning to Graph & Analyze Data I

When do Dark-Eyed Juncos Visit Bird Feeders?

2. Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II

How does the number of nesting pairs change from year to year?

3. Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data I

Do woodpeckers prefer seeds or suet?

4. Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data II

To which country are Ruby-throated hummingbirds most likely to migrate?

5. Assessment: Graphing & Analyzing Data

NGSSHS-LS2-2
Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales. Examples of mathematical representations include finding the average, determining trends, and using graphical comparisons of multiple sets of data. Assessment is limited to provided data.
NGSSMS-LS2-4
Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
NGSSMS-LS2-2
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words.
