Heart Smart in a Heart Beat

As an introductory activity, young statisticians measure their heart rate at rest and after exercise and compute the mean and median, and create a box & whisker plot.  This is followed by watching a video (that no longer seems to exist on the linked site) that introduces the relationship between exercise and one’s health. They then engage in some form of aerobic activity for two weeks and record their results in a journal. Note: A number of the links to websites no longer exist.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
