# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

- Take notes about the methods your classmates used to analyze the data sets and their results and conclusions.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

- Did you round the numbers to whole numbers? Why or why not?
- What is the range of data for each trial? Does the range get wider or narrower from the first trial to the third trial?
- Where is the data clustered in your graphs? Where does the middle 50% of the data lie?
- Why did you use that graph to represent the data?
- Why did you use those tools to analyze the data?
- Based on your results, can you conclude that your estimation skills improve with practice?
- Can you generalize this conclusion to students in your grade? Why or why not?
- Suppose that you analyzed the data from the second trial. How do you think this analysis would compare to your analyses of the first and third data sets?
