Day 148 – 150 Data Collection and Graphing Project

ImageTo wrap up our “Collecting, Displaying, and Analyzing Data” unit, we started a project today that will continue for the next few days.  Students picked a survey topic and were asked to survey at least 50 people.  They had to have at least 5 choices for their “population” to choose from.

From this data, they will create a cumulative frequency table, bar or circle graph, and answer some follow-up questions based on the results.  Today we met up with other math classes so they could get close to 50 data points.  Image
