Scientists and engineers develop the procedures for their research and then carry out their investigations in a variety of environments (i.e., in the lab, outdoors, with others, as well as independently). They must plan in advance their criteria for the data they wish to collect, the conditions
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create a histogram using tropical cyclone data.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data. This is part of the Tropical Cyclone Counts Graphing Bundle and can be completed independently or with
Students will analyze surface temperature and solar radiation data to construct explanations about the relationship of seasons and temperature to the amount of solar energy received on Earth’s surface.
The products of science are explanations and the products of engineering are solutions.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to compare data displays to determine which best answers the driving question. To do this they will evaluate the spread of the data and what the displays show.
The student will analyze and interpret a histogram and evaluate the spread of the data. Students will compare it with a different visualization of the data to see how the two compare.
