Quantitative Data Activity
The activity involves a set of data dealing with the percentage difference between measure calories and labeled calories of particular items, in two categories, per item and per gram. Students are asked to make stem-and-leaf plots, dotplots, and histograms of the two variables. The students are then asked to describe the distributions of the two variables: “per gram” and “per item” and compare the resulting distributions. The students are asked to use the appropriate descriptive statisti

Most students will have an intuitive sense that kinetic energy depends on how fast something is moving (speed) and how massive it is (mass). (We use speed instead of velocity, because energy is a scalar, and independent of direction.) They know that it hurts more in dodge ball when the ball is thrown with more speed than when it is thrown with less speed. They also know that is hurts more to drop a bowling ball on their foot than it does to drop a tennis ball. Exactly how mass, speed and kinetic
