Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II:

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

I have created a set of 5 instructional worksheets (this is worksheet 2) that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building my students’ scientific background knowledge. Rather than graphing meaningless data about favorite colors and pets your students will graph and analyze scientifically meaningful data based on real-world research on wild birds.

Skills and content for Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II:

1. Scaffolding for making a double-bar graph.

2. Guidance for choosing intervals and labeling axes.

3. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

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 (bundled packet):

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

How far might a Peregrine falcon migrate?

Skills and content you and your students will enjoy:

1. Leveled scaffolding in making bar and line graphs, such as how to choose intervals, labeling axes and writing graph titles.

2. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

3. Mathematical analysis including calculating averages, speed and percentages.

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

5. Graphing and analysis of data based on actual scientific studies on bird ecology and behavior.

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.
