1 Set up your next blank notebook page as shown below CW #9 : MAKING DATA TABLES AND GRAPHS Part A: Teacher Example Problem: Data and Results: (leave at least 8 lines to write your Data table) Graph Step 1: figure Out the problem or question Is the sea otter population increasing, decreasing Or remaining steady ?

2 CW #9 : MAKING DATA TABLES AND GRAPHS Part A: Sea Otters Problem: Is the sea otter population increasing, decreasing or remaining steady ? Step 1: figure Out the problem or question

3 CW #9 : MAKING DATA TABLES AND GRAPHS Part A: Sea Otters Problem: Is the sea otter population increasing, decreasing or remaining steady ? Step 1: figure Out the problem or question Step 2: Record your observations Data And Results In year one of the study (1962) they counted 46 otters. Eight years later the count was 42. In 1982 the count was 35. Ten years later it dropped to 30. At last count in 2002, the count of was 26.

4 CW #9 : MAKING DATA TABLES AND GRAPHS Part A: Sea Otters Problem: What happened to the Sea Otter Population? Step 1: figure Out the problem or question Step 2: Record your observations Step 3: Organize the observations (data) into a table yearNumber of otters Data and results

Step 3: Organize the observations (data) into a table yearNumber of otters Manipulated variable: the variable you are changing on purpose To see what will happen. Time is often the manipulated variable Data and Results

Time is often the manipulated variable Responding variable: The variable that changes in response to the manipulated variable. It is what you are measuring Data and Results

8 YEARS COUNTED# OF OTTERS

9 CW #9~ Making Data Tables and Graphs SEA OTTERS: TEACHER EXAMPLE Problem: Is the sea otter population increasing, decreasing Or remaining steady ? Data & Results: DATA TABLE #1: Change in Sea Otter Pop. over 40 years GRAPH: YEARS COUNTED# OF OTTERS GRAPH#1: Change in Sea Otter Population over 40 years YEARS # of otters

10  PARTNER A -Read HANGING WEIGHTS -DIRECT PARTNER B to Create data table ON WHITEBOARD -CHECK YOUR DATA TABLE AGAINST YOUR “CRITERIA FOR CONSTRUCTING A DATA TABLE” FOUND IN YOUR SCIENCE NOTEBOOK -Get checked by teacher -Copy DATA TABLE Science Notebook -Create Graph ON WHITEBOARD CHECK YOUR GRAPH AGAINST YOUR “CRITERIA FOR CONSTRUCTING A GRAPH” FOUND IN YOUR SCIENCE NOTEBOOK (APPENDIX Pg. H) -Get checked by teacher before proceeding -Copy GRAPH Science Notebook  PARTNER B - ask questions and offer suggestions  Switch roles for BOUNCING SPHERICAL OBJECTS YOUR TASK
