Students will analyze photos for specific details that reveal the owner of a specific room.Then the analysis will include literature but will focus on literary devices and connotations.Also, students will have the opportunity to summarize text and then use evidence to support specific connotations.
In this lesson, students begin working with the data that they have been collecting since the first lesson of the chapter in the class "data tracker." They are introduced to the first step in analyzing data: cleaning the data. Students will follow a guide in Code Studio, which demonstrates the common techniques of filtering and sorting data to familiarize themselves with its contents. Then they will correct errors they find in the data by either hand-correcting invalid values or deleting them. Finally they will categorize any free-text columns that were collected to prepare them for analysis. This lesson introduces many new skills with spreadsheets and reveals the sometimes subjective nature of data analysis.
In this lesson students learn how create their own summary tables from raw data. A summary table typically represents one or more aggregations (groupings of items) and computations that are performed on the raw dataset. In most spreadsheet programs, a summary table is called a pivot table. In the lesson, students learn how to make pivot tables in Google Sheets using a provided dataset. Then students turn to the data they’ve collected as a class and, with their partner, use pivot tables to investigate it further.

Aaron and Justin investigate which sunscreen best keeps out harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun, in this video from DragonflyTV.
This course is an introduction to measurement technology and describes the theoretical foundations and practical examples of measurement systems. The analyzing of measurements problems and specifying of measurements systems are the main subjects that are treated in this course, where the main focus will be on the different kind of measurement errors and the concept of uncertainty in measurement results. Electronic measurement instrumentation will be introduced; a number of conventional sensors for the measurement of non-electronic variables will be described, as well as electronic circuits for the reading of the sensors.-Analyzing of measurement problems-Describing of measurement problems -Analyzing the measurement quantity-Analyzing the measurement boundaries for a quantity to be measured in different circumstances-Professional use of the measurement system-Describing the operating principle of conventional instruments for electronic measurements.-Comparing the available measurement instruments on the basis of quality and accuracy.-Realization of simple measurement setups.-Using the electronic sensor for the measurement of non-electronic variables.-Using a simple signal processing circuits for the reading of the sensors.-Analyzing, presenting and interpreting of measurement results;-Recognizing and describing of error sources.
