Feb. 5, 2014 – Math (Interval Data)

Fun snowy day today!
In LITERACY/SOCIAL STUDIES, we worked on creating our individual videos of our First Nations artifacts to be used tomorrow in the creation of our cool multi-media mini-projects (“ThingLink” interactive photo!!!!). Many, many thanks to our volunteer, Miss Josling, who faciliated all of the videos! In the lab, we used Google Docs to brainstorm our text boxes of information for our ThingLinks!

Feb. 3, 2014 – Math (data, intervals)

We began math today in the textbook — a sample of fictitious student test data that ranged from a score of 54 to a score of 95. There were 25 pieces of data (i.e. 25 student scores in the set of data, ranging from 54 to 95).

We wondered why intervals ending in 60, 70, 80 were preferable to intervals ending in 59, 69, 79?

Is it because ending with multiples of 10 (e.g. 60, 70, 80) just seems more tidy and finished? What do you think?

We made observations about the graph in the example, which was made using the intervals 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 91-100.

Next, we used our observations to create Anchor Charts, one reference chart for the steps needed to create intervals out of a large set of numbers and one reference chart for the steps needed to create bar graphs using interval data.

Jan. 30/31, 2014 – First Nations Museum, Data Management

Our First Nations Museum, a new way to look at Mean in data management, and a picture from Theatre Ancaster’s Stage 2 production of “Joseph” – way to go 5f student Owen L.! It was great to see you on stage, as well as 6G’s Naomi B.!
