Analyzing Data



The math class has been working on analyzing data. Specifically we are finding the mean, median, mode and range as well as describing the data using line plots, frequency distribution tables, and histograms. If you don't know what these words mean, simply double click on them and the definition will pop up. If you still don't know what they mean ask one of the students, they will be happy to explain it :)

We are gathering data now on our school lunch program to analyze if the choices the students have are really choices. By that I mean are enough students choosing them to make them a viable alternative.

Here are some videos you can watch to learn what we are doing.

I wish I had been taught to analyze data when I was in elementary school! Good luck analyzing your school lunch program. I hope you write a post sharing the results of your analysis.

Debbie, I am planning on publishing it, maybe other schools will be inspired to do something similar.
