For each group of
3 Student Activity Sheets for Learning Experience 5 (Please see PDF
For the class:
A mini-lesson on the creation of a scatter plot and
stem-and-leaf plots may be necessary before completing this learning experience.
Students will create a stem and leaf plot and scatterplot,
read and analyze nutritional data, and answer questions based on that data.
Students will record the nutritional data of various brands of snack foods and
create scatterplots and stem-and-leaf plots with the data.
Students are to look at the nutritional data on the popcorn
in the kit and other brands of snack food labels provided. Students are to
create a stem and leaf plot and scatterplot of some specific aspects of the nutritional data.
On the Student Activity Sheet for Learning Experience 4,
students are recording the number of fat grams/cup and number of calories/cup.
Then students create a scatterplot with that data.
Then students find the fat grams/cup, carbohydrate
grams/cup, and protein grams/cup and create a stem and leaf plot for each piece
of data. Students then answer questions about the results.
