Data About Us is the data analysis unit from
the Connected Mathematics Program (CMP) and this project is one
of the activities that students do to help them tie their
understanding of data analysis into a cohesive whole.
Each student was required to ask a categorical and numerical question
of their classmates, display, then analyze the data. Although the
students had a series of requirements,
I have not edited or modified the work that they have posted here.
Because we wanted to create line plots and stem-and-leaf plots for
some of the data, we used tables. As a first attempt at creating these
types of plots in web pages, the results are, shall we say, somewhat variable?
The Greek letters are identifiers that I've given to each
student. Not only does it help me keep their work in [Greek]
alphabetical order, but they start to learn the Greek alphabet.
