Students analyze different perspectives of the history of the Holocaust. They experience primary and secondary sources along with pieces from literature, documentaries, songs and letters. A commitment of honor and dedication is expressed through the thoughts and feelings experienced by the survivors of the Holocaust viewed in this lesson plan.
A teacher's guide for a seminar held at the Cincinnati Art Museum includes a full description of several Pre-Raphaelite art pieces, artists, and connecting literary works. Excerpts from authors and poets can help you make the connection between art and literature for your class.
Seventh graders are provided with a step-by-step process for creating a box-and-whisker plot. The lesson serves as an introduction to the concept and students should have prerequisite knowledge regarding mean, median, and range of a set of data. Additionally, the lesson uses data sets for which the number of elements is divisible by four, facilitating the creation of quartiles.
Analyze data using technology. Middle schoolers design data investigations, describe data, and draw their own conclusions. Then they select the best type of graph, graph and interpret the data, and look for patterns in trends. They also use a graphing calculator to investigate and to communicate their results. Designed for use with Texas Instruments calculators, the resource can adapt to low-tech classrooms as well.
Young mathematicians become familiar with the terms mean, mode, range. They research data, organize it, and then create and interpret box-and-whisker plots, histograms, and scatterplots. As a class, pupils create box-and-whisker plots, discuss the meaning of the lengths of the whiskers and other parts of the plot.
In this box-and-whisker plots worksheet, middle schoolers solve and complete 5 different types of problems. First, they find the median and the upper and lower quartiles. Then, students make a box-and-whisker plot to display the data set. In addition, they use the box-and-whisker plot to find the lower and upper extreme in the data set.
Middle schoolers discover how to relate collected data with a box and whiskers graph in a number of formats. They collect, organize, create, and interpret a box and whiskers graph. Pupils interpret the difference between sets of data, and share their results with the class. This is a good lesson to introduce what a Box and Whiskers graph is, and how they are best-used.
Students explore the concept of box and whisker plots. In this box and whisker plots instructional activity, students enter data for the cost of cd's, brother's ages, temperatures, and miles traveled on weekends into lists in the calculator. Students plot the data using a box and whisker plots. Students find the quartile range of the data and the median of the data.
