With an influx of data and statistics standards into different levels of the Common Core, a greater emphasis is placed on students understanding data and administering questionnaires (now in the new Algebra 2). This product intends to help provide an outline and structure to a project that often has a great deal of freedom with it... perhaps too much freedom.
In this project, students will understand different quantitative research question types, critique poorly asked questions, practice writing structured questions and finally planning their own full-fledged questionnaire until they find out they have to --
-- do a statistical analysis of each survey question AND write a report based on their findings. Push them to do what graduate students and professors do every day. Seek random samples, calculate raw data, analyze the results and report their findings.
All in one 21st Century Math Project.
In this 20 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use. Check the preview to see every document that's included.
-- In "Quantitative Research Questionnaire", students will understand different quantitative research question types, critique poorly asked questions, and practice writing structured questions.
-- In "Mean, Median, and Mode Refresh", students will have use a dataset to practice these old skills.
-- In "Advanced Stats", students will practice questions that require standard deviation and margin of error.
-- In "Questionnaire Planning Guide", students will use this to plan their own questionnaires, compute their raw data and write a report on their findings. and finally plan their own full-fledged questionnaire. Then they'll find out they have to do a statistical analysis of each survey question AND write a report based on their findings. Push them to do what graduate students and professors do every day! Seek random samples, calculate raw data, analyze the results and report their findings.
