Patterns of Evolution and Selection
Can your young biologists interpret population graphs, match macroevolution patterns and descriptions, and answer multiple choice questions about evolution? Find out with a comprehensive three-page quiz covering some specific examples of natural selection and adaptation. To help you collect academic data, you may choose to use the quiz as a pretest or a posttest.
Hypothesis Testing: Two Sample Tests
Young scholars experiment and compare results of two populations. In this men and women populations lesson, students examine the difference in hand span for men and women. Young scholars calculate a norm based on their results. Students complete additional problems to find the norm.
Graphics Creation and Statistical Interpretation: Relating Local Economics and the Global Environment
Young scholars apply statistics, and graphical interpretation to economics, the environment and populations. In this statistical lesson students construct graphical displays and classify data.
For this statistics and probability worksheet, young statisticians solve and complete 13 different problems related to probability, percentages, and normal distributions. They consider data models, assumptions about the models, and find probabilities based on models.
Using Mathematics to Explain the Spread of Diseases
Learners use statistics to solve problems based on the spread of disease. In this disease lesson students study the role that viruses and bacteria play in the spread of diseases and explain pandemics.
High schoolers explore the concept of normal curves. In this normal curves lesson, students find the normal curve for a crop of oranges. High schoolers graph the harvest and answer questions about quartiles. Students discuss which oranges are sold to a specific buyer.
Exam 2 Review Stats Spring 09
In this statistics worksheet, learners solve 25 multiple choice problems. Students find combinations, probabilities, coefficients of determination, etc.
Students examine the pattern of natural variation in a society. They examine Darwin's theory of evolution and analyze data. They use computer programs to graphically display the variation in organisms.
Variations in Living Things
Biology beginners observe traits in a collection of plant parts to realize the tremendous amount of genetic variation within a species. They consider rules of nature and discuss what would happen if they changed. They also examine data comparing gestation time to number of babies born and lifestyles to find that gestation is an environment-influenced adaptation. Plenty of critical thinking is stimulated through these activities, and as a result, your class will more fully understand gentetic variation.
High schoolers log their computer usage hours. They determine the mean, median, mode and standard deviation of the collected data. They make a frequency histogram of the grouped data, both on graph paper, and on the TI 83+ graphing calculator.
Human Face of Mathematics - Mathematics in Aboriginal Culture
Students collect statistical data. In groups, students play a dart game and then determine the distance between darts. They collect the data and plot the information on a coordinate plane. They identify the mean and the standard deviation.
Regents High School Examination Mathematics B
In this secondary mathematics worksheet, students are provided with questions that are reflective of the types of questions on the New York State Regents Examination. The twenty-four page worksheet contains a combination of thirty-four multiple choice and free response questions. Answers are included.
In this math worksheet, students review basic concepts of algebra, and geometry in preparations for the Regents high school Examination. There are 34 questions.
Build a Catapult
Studens construct their own catapult. In this history of catapults lesson, learners work in groups to make their own model of a catapult. Students use physics vocabulary terms explain how the catapult works. Learners test the catapults and record the features that made the best catapult.
Measurement and Variation
Examine the concept of variation through observation and measurement. Middle schoolers will study a peanut and record any distinguishing characteristics visible as well as sketch their peanuts and describe them in writing. Their peanut is put in a bag with others and they try to identify it. Students then receive 15-20 peanuts in which they make measurements and examine the variation in length of the different peanuts and the variation in measurements.
Testing for Clairvoyance
In this clairvoyance worksheet, students create a probability histogram. They explore the standard deviation for the given situation. This six-page worksheet contains approximately 10 multi-step problems. This worksheet is designed to be completed with a partner.
Histograms and Bar Graphs
Students examine the use of bar graphs and histograms. In this data representation lesson, students investigate the proper use of bar graphs and histograms to represent data. They learn the proper geometric definitions, experience direct instruction, guided practice, and independent application using the provided worksheets.
In this precalc lesson, students write out definitions, identify functions, solve integrals and derivatives and graph trig functions as they relate to angles. This is a final exam for precalculus. There are 80 questions on this exam.
Oil Spill in a Test Tube
Students develop a test tube model of an oil spill in order to experiment with conditions needed for bioremediation. They apply the principals of experimental design by analyzing a research article on the EXXON Valdez bioremediation efforts a
Starting With Stats
Statisticians analyze a data set of student IQs by finding measures of central tendency and dispersion such as mean, median, mode, and quartiles. They practice using a graphing calculator to find the values and analyze box plots and histograms for the data.
