Level 2

Students analyze two variables; they calculate descriptive statistics, seek patterns, identify outliers, confounding variables and perform calculations to reach findings; they may also create graphical representations of the data.
Activity Name Data Strand Level NGSS Practices Topic
ATLAS Masterclass (0 comments)

Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physiists to how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.
