If your district is anything like mine, they are always trying to get us to incorporate math/data in all content areas. This is a great assignment for that task!
This assignment provides students with the opportunity to analyze data related to health. Students will look at the data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and compare the national data to the data from their state.
For this assignment, students will work in groups and be assigned one of the areas of concern. They will analyze the data and then create a presentation to share with the class.
Included is the assignment description, appropriate links to websites, and a grading rubric.
