Here is a threaded lesson that I created for my mathematics class.
Step 1) I will have my students check out this infographic before class and be ready to discuss at the beginning of class.
Step 2) I will show this youtube about the relationship between wealth and health.
Step 3) After watching the video we will have a short discussion about what the students think about the video.
Step 4) I will present them with the question, “Is there a relationship between your height and your arm?”
Step 5) We will watch this Myth Buster videos to spark their interest in using data to figure out myths.
Step 6) I will pass out rules and papers so the students can record their heights and arm span in inches.
Step 7) I will use this workshop to record a sample of the data and work on creating a scatter plot and other things we have learned from the previous class.
