The 8th grade students have just had an end of unit summative test. They are expected to study math 6 days out of seven. (This counting period contained a holiday – some students did more than expected)
The graph above shows the number of days of study and the percentage grade – what does it reveal to you? Is there a general trend? What would be a reason for some of the outliers?
The 8th grade students will receive this task (based upon their own data) and will need to write a short report on their interpretation of these results.
