Summary


The major plan is to have students become familiar with photosynthesis and linear regression analysis. This requires a learning collaboration between science and statistics by constructing a hypothesis about how the number of plants in schools or businesses is correlated with the number of sick days taken or the number of students absent from illnesses.

  • S-ID.6 Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot, and describe how the variables are related. Students will construct a scatter plot showing relation between number of plants and sick days/absences.
