Project will be to collect data from other 8th grade classes at Cornerstone and perhaps one other school (Westchester), probably using google docs.
The objective is for students to learn (more) about statistics and data analysis. Students will choose something they want to measure, for example the music tastes of other 8th graders. They will create survey questions in a google doc spreadsheet, and ask other classes to answer the questions. Once they have the data, they will create pie charts, frequency distribution charts, scatter plots and make observations/conclusions about the data.
Will do this in April or May, depending on testing schedule, etc.
