The Science
Connection: Looking at the Data
Recording the Data
 On a small data table, each
group recorded the temperature that was in their jar.
 Using a large data table,
the information for the entire class was recorded.
 The mean, median, mode and
range were found for the data. These are all important math skills found
on the FCAT.
Creating a Line Graph
 A line graph was then created
showing the mean for the entire class.
 A large graph was used so
the students could see what was expected of them.
 Creating a graph gives students
practice identifying and labeling its various parts.
 Identifying trends and drawing
conclusions helps to solidify the students' understanding of the graph.
