Chapter 10, Section B



Problem B2. Consider topics of interest to students in grades 6-8 that involve collecting data about different characteristics within one population, and then formulate five questions that involve collecting quantitative (numerical) data. For each question, identify an appropriate way to display the data (e.g., line plot, bar graph, histogram, circle graph, stem and leaf plot, box plot, scatter plot) and describe how each display would be used to highlight potential relationships between the two characteristics. So this means asking 1 group a question and relating it to another variable. So students might be interested in height to arm span, hours studied to test grades, age to height, age to weight, # of songs on ipod to # of movies on ipod, # of electronic devices to age. I would use a scatterplot for these results.
