Stats Sharp Shooting

Statistics
WALT calculate the mean, median, mode and range for a set of data.
TASK Elly and Troy want to find out once and for all:
which Activity Group has the overall best score, (mean)
which Activity Group has the highest middle number, (median)
what score was the most common, (mode)
which activity group has the highest range. (range)

In everyday life people collect data to look for trends and make decisions. In order to analyse the information, we need to understand the different ways to lOOK at the data.

Success Criteria you will know you are successful when:
calculate the mean by adding up all the data (9 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 8 = 30) then divide the total by how many numbers there were (9, 4, 4, 5, 8 = 5 numbers so 30 ÷ 5 = 6).
calculate the median by ordering all numbers from smallest to biggest then selecting the middle number (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 5 is the middle number). If there are 6 numbers e.g. 4, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, then the median is halfway = 5.5.
calculate the mode by identifying which number occurs most often (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 4 because there are two of them). You can have more than one mode.
calculate the range by finding the difference between the highest and lowest numbers (9 - 4 = 5).

This is for my set of data.
Mean: 177

Median:28

Mode: There was no numbers that occurred the most

Range: The range is the highest and the lowest. 23-28-38

WALT: calculate the mean, median, mode and range of a set of data.

 My groups range is 7 and 36

My groups mode is 21 23 and 46

WALT: calculate the mean, median, mode and range of a set of data.

Statistics Sample


WALT: gather, display and discuss data


Success Criteria:  
  • Gather relevant information
  • Display data on a stem and leaf graph
  • Make some conclusions about the data


Task:
To present information about reaction times using a ruler.


Data:  On Friday Kaylana my learning buddy and I put our hands 20 centimetres apart from each other and the other person would drop a ruler in between the other person's hand. The other person would try to catch it. Then we would measure it from your pinky. It would be something like 12. Then you would record your data by using a leaf graph. My highest score was 12 and my lowest was 30+.

Stem and Leaf Graph:











Sorted Stem and Leaf Graph:










Conclusion: I was faster than Kaylana. I know that by looking at the stem and leaf graph because she got more 30+'s than me and I got more 10's than her.

Assessment: I think I did great because I can make some conclusions about the data, I can display data on a stem and leaf graph and I can gather relevant information. I can sort a stem and leaf graph into numbers lowest to highest as well. 


Self Assessment:

  • I can gather relevant information
  • I can display data on a stem and leaf graph
  • I can make some conclusions about the data










                     Peer Assesment:
    • I can gather relevant information
    • I can display data on a stem and leaf graph
    • I can make some conclusions about the data

Reading Portfolio Sample


Nearly 40 people in Auckland have recently been diagnosed with the infectious measles disease. Westlake Boys High School on Aucklands North Shore is one of the hardest hit communities with 20 ill
students.
Several other Westlake Boys High pupils who have not been immunised against measles have been asked to stay away for the next two weeks.
Measles is a very serious disease that is highly contagious and can spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The symptoms include fever, a cough, sore eyes and a rash. There is no treatment, and complications can be severe.
The Auckland Health Service has estimated that around 750 people are at immediate risk of catching the highly contagious disease.
Dr. Julia Peters said the Health Service had been working with the North Shore school for just over a week when the first case of measles was found there.
"This is definitely more than what we'd normally see. We're working hard to contain the measles within the Auckland region."
Dr. Peters said many people who had come down with the disease had recently been overseas and, in particular, in the Philippines.
The public health service has sent information to parents and students at Westlake Boys High and asked that those students who are not sure whether they have been immunised against measles to stay away.
"What we're trying to do is isolate those students as well as those who have measles, because students who are not immunised can get sick," she said.
Another seven cases of measles in Auckland are being investigated ­ three of them from the same school.
What to watch for Symptoms
* High fever.
* Runny nose, cough, red eyes.
* Small white spots inside mouth.
* Red, blotchy rash on face and neck and later over entire body.
WALT: Analysing an article
Task: Answer questions based on a Newspaper Article.


Success Criteria:
● Show critical thinking in your answers.
● Answer questions in full sentences.
● Use correct spelling and punctuation.
1) How do people contract measles? They caught it by having someone cough on them and they have let the bugs go Ito there body.
2) Why do you think so many students at Westlake High School have contracted measles? Because they have not been immunised by the doctor and have been catching it.
3) What is the Auckland Health Services main role in this measles outbreak? Dr Julia Peters has found that there is measles in the school that she works at. They have also estimated that 750 people are at risk of getting the measles.
4) In the article Dr. Peters said “many people who had come down with the disease had recently been overseas and, in particular, in the Philippines.” Why do you think this is? Because they are quite poor and they could get sick easely if they do not have much money.
5) In your opinion what would be the best way to avoid getting measles? By staying away from people who do have the measles and staying healthy.
Use the following criteria to assess yourself and your peer
● Show critical thinking in your answers.
● Answer questions in full sentences.
● Use correct spelling and punctuation  
Self Assessment: I think I did really well because I put full sentences and I think did all the right puncuation.
















Peer Assessment:
I think that it is good and that you completed all the questions.
