Data Analysis Tutorial
Introduction
InstantActivity Kits Classroom Suiteincludes 30 instant-activity kits. Each kit includes an Activity ready for students to use, a Template ready for teachers to create additional similar activities quickly, and a PDF file of this tutorial.
Data Analysis The Data Analysis instant-activity kit includes the Data Sur vey activity, the Data Analysis Template, and a PDF file of this tutorial. You can find these components by opening the Math Templates folder and then the Data Analysis folder in the New area ofClassroom Suite.
The Data Analysis Template can be used to create new data analysis problem sets. Students analyze the data in graphs and charts on each page in response to the problem on that page. They enter fraction bars to respond to the problem. Five categories of data have been provided for this template.
In this tutorial, you will start by exploring the Data Sur vey activity. Later in the tutorial, you will learn to create customized data analysis activities, using the Data Analysis Template.
Universal Design The activities you create using the Data Analysis Template andClassroom Suiteare designed for all students, including those with physical or cognitive disabilities.
Create a Folder for Your New Activities When you use this template, you will be creating new activities for your students to use. To organize these activities, you will want to create your own folder in the Activities area ofClassroom Suite. 1. At the Navigation Screen, click the Activities button. Click the New Folder button on the right side of the screen. A dialog box will ask you to name the folder. Give it the name of one of your classes (e.g., Mrs. Smith’s Class).
2. 3.
Open the Data Analysis Template (see page 3). When you complete your work with the template and click the Finish Activity button, the Save As Activity dialog appears. Name your new activity, select the folder in which you want to place your work, and click OK. Your new activity will now be available for you to assign to students.
This tutorial requires that you have installed IntelliMathics 3y. Authoring features necessar to complete this tutorial are not available when using theIntelliMathics 3 Player.
