Thursday-Friday, May 6-7, 2010 (series 1)

Objective(s):
By the end of today you will...
Students will be able to conduct a controlled experiment, tabulating data into excel for further analysis. Students will use appropriate formulas to calculate the average of all trials.

Students will convert tabulated data to graphs and combine their data with class aggregate data

Agenda:
1. Warm Up
2. Announcements
3. 2 and 3 Series Graphs
4. Which Sense is the Fastest? Instructions
5. Data Collection
6. Graphing

Warm Up: (MS EXCEL!)
One car is being tested for their ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH. A Porche will be accelerated from 0 to 60 in this experiment. We will keep track of how long (in seconds) it takes the car to go from 0 to 60.  This experiment will be done 5 Times (5 trials). An average [=average(range)]time will also be calculated for all the trials.

Create (1) a table and (2) a graph for the results.
