Build the Biggest Box
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Student pairs are given 10 minutes to create the biggest box possible using one piece of construction paper. Teams use only scissors and tape to each construct a box and determine how much puffed rice it can hold. Then, to meet the challenge, they improve their designs to create bigger boxes. They plot the class data, comparing measured to calculated volumes for each box, seeing the mathematical relationship. They discuss how the concepts of volume and design iteration are important for engineers. Making 3-D shapes also supports the development of spatial visualization skills. This activity and its associated lesson and activity all employ volume and geometry to cultivate seeing patterns and understanding scale models, practices used in engineering design to analyze the effectiveness of proposed design solutions.

Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

A brief refresher on the Cartesian plane includes how points are written in (x, y) format and oriented to the axes, and which directions are positive and negative. Then students learn about what it means for a relation to be a function and how to determine domain and range of a set of data points.

This is a desktop application for visualization of data with convenient plotting functions. It is intended for educational/scientific use and teaching data analysis skills such as aggregation, merging data and getting statistics.
Though the program has a spreadsheet like interface, the focus is on data manipulation with very configurable 2D/3D plotting rather than data entry. Though basic cell editing and row/column changes are supported. The program is open source., licensed under the GPL.
This program is suitable for use by secondary school and third level students wishing to learn about data manipulation and advanced plotting.

Understanding the Air through Data Analysis
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students build on their existing air quality knowledge and a description of a data set to each develop a hypothesis around how and why air pollutants vary on a daily and seasonal basis. Then they are guided by a worksheet through an Excel-based analysis of the data. This includes entering formulas to calculate statistics and creating plots of the data. As students complete each phase of the analysis, reflection questions guide their understanding of what new information the analysis reveals. At activity end, students evaluate their original hypotheses and “put all of the pieces together.” The activity includes one carbon dioxide worksheet/data set and one ozone worksheet/data set; providing students and/or instructors with a content option. The activity also serves as a good standalone introduction to using Excel.
