Hi everyone. This weekend you need to complete a Data Management project at home. You may choose from the list below or create your own:
1) Design a survey (e.g., favourite colour, movie genre, etc.), gather the data, graph the data, analyse the data.
2) Measure data (e.g., height, shoe size, arm span to height etc.), record data, graph data, analyse data, find mean and median.
3) Gather data (how many...countries have you visited, blood type, etc.), record data, graph data, analyse data, find mean and median if applicable.
4) Gather secondary data (e.g., city populations, weather data), organize data, graph data, analyse data, find mean and median if applicable.

- Present your results on a sheet of paper (no more than two pieces back to back) from your Math notebook.
- You can add graphics, including a large title, add colour.
- You may use the computer for some parts.
- Work with some family members.
- Have fun!

Here is a little tutorial on intervals. Hope it helps!

This week we are learning about renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Why is our energy running out? How can we conserve (save or use less) energy? What are the long term impacts on society and the environment of human uses of energy and natural resources? Watch the Lorax (1972) and think about some of the answers to the questions above,
