Slide1: Cepia Buchanan And Cassey Shaw Slide2: 5b: Compare data and interpret quantities represented on tables and graphs, including line graphs, stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and box-and-whisker plots to make predictions, and solve problems based on the information. (DOK 2) Slide3: Is it possible to predict something before you know all of the elements? You have already learned about several different graphs and plots!! Today we are going to put them to good use!! : You have already learned about several different graphs and plots!! Today we are going to put them to good use!! Slide9: Now you will use these tables and graphs to make predictions and solve problems Slide10: Our school parking lot has been magically transformed into a large lake full of Crocodiles! Slide11: Our journey today is going to be hard and adventurous. Put on your sailing hats and get busy! Your “team” is going to devise a plan to get across this crocodile infested lake! THERE IS ONE PROBLEM: You can only use THREE sheets of Newspaper!! : You can only use THREE sheets of Newspaper!! Slide13: The only way to cross the lake is by staying ON the newspaper. The newspaper is your paper boat. Any team member that steps off of the boat will be grabbed my a crocodile and will be out of the game. The goal is to get as many team members across the lake alive as possible. Cont….: Cont…. If your team tears any piece of the newspaper, the boat will sink and the whole team will wind up in the croc-infested water! Very strenuous and hard! Predict….: Predict…. Each group needs to predict several things: How many of the team members do you think will make it across the lake alive? How long will it take your team to cross the lake? Will your team tear the newspaper? Will your second trip across the lake be better times? WRITE THESE DOWN AND KEEP! Slide16: Your team will be allowed 10 minutes to devise a strategy to make it across the lake. So.. Let’s get into our teams: Slide17: Amy Ashley Donna Mary N. Eddie Caleb Slide18: Michael Ama Chenata Richard Josie Slide19: China Mary P. Charlotte Linda Neomi Slide20: 3 pieces of Newspaper per group Wipe- Off board Stop Watch Graphing Paper Slide21: Make sure to use your wipe off board to keep your data when you cross the lake. Both times! You need to make sure we know: How long it took Who fell off, if anyone Your strategy, and if it changed the 2nd time Slide22: YOU HAVE 10 MINUTES!! -Devise a Plan -Write down your predictions! Slide23: So, we all survived the croc-infested lake… lets put all of our classroom data on the board for all to see. Slide24: Each group will choose any of the four graphs we have discussed and use your data to create two graphs. Graph 1- First trips across the lake Graph 2- Second trips across the lake Slide26: Were your predictions true? Was your second strategy better? What would you have changed?
