Engage students in data analysis through use of Presidential data. Students will create box and whisker, stem and leaf, histograms and scatterplot through their investigations.
In the end, students will take on the inquiry question: "Do US Presidents with the most children live longer after they have been inaugurated?"
-- In "He Entered a Young Man", students will make a parallel box-and-whisker plot by hand of the ages of the US Presidents at the time of their inauguration. They will use the box-and-whisker plot to answer the following questions.
-- In "Oval Office Analysis", students will use the data of the presidents to complete a variety of data displays including: stem and leaf plot, histograms, frequency distribution, mean, median, mode, range, box and whisker plots.
-- In "Presidential Inquiry", students will explore correlation of bivariate data to determine if a relationship exists between the number of children of a president has and their longevity after inauguration.
