Use a Data Table to Verify Predictions and Answer Questions
Click here to view the Marble Roll data table.
As a class or in small groups, display the data for your class. Are those the data you sent to the database?
Now select the data for All Classes and a Data Type (All Data Types, Real, or Virtual). Sort the data in the Distance Rolled column.
Write down your findings. Then, select different Data Types and write down your findings. Use what you discovered to verify the prediction you made before collecting data. Try to explain differences. Also, write down the things you wonder about. Then sort other columns, or click on the arrows at the top of the data table to display other data and see what you can discover. Remember to write down your findings and your questions.
