This project covers a large range of data analysis methods. There are seven total parts to the project.
Part One: the students have to collect data from 20 students outside of the classroom. Directions specify to ask students from each grade level.
Part Two: Measures of Center and Variation. Students will calculate mean, median, mode, and range for some of the data collected. Definitions of each term are included.
Part Three: Box-And-Whisker Plot. Students will create two box-and-whisker plots based off specified data they collected. Directions and an example are included.
Part Four: Bar Graph vs. Histogram. Students will create one bar graph and one histogram based off specified data they collected. (Great for discussion about the differences between the two)
Part Five: Two-Way Table Students will use specified data they collected to create two two-way tables. Directions and an example are included.
Part Six: Types of Data. Students will determine if the data they collected is qualitative or quantitative. They will also create six more examples of data that they could have collected and determine if those are qualitative or quantitative.
Part Seven: Stem and Leaf Plot. Students will create two stem and leaf plots. Directions and an example are provided.
