| Teacher Review (Based on classroom experience)|
Reviewer: Craig, Jun 14 2005 09:25:10:843AM
Classroom use in Courses and Topics:
Algebra: Analyzing Linear Data; Algebra II: Transformations of functions, Exponential Functions, Logarithmic Functions; PreCalculus: Operations with Logs; Probability & Statistics: Data and Distributions, Inference
Duration of classroom use:
What did students learn?
Students learned data analysis and curve fitting (mathematics), plus some environmental science.
What did students do with the resource?
Most often, students would use the data files and perform appropriate data analysis, usually using a spreadsheet.
How hard was it for students to use?
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings, applications of a concept or technique, advanced investigations
Very versatile resource!
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
Some vocabulary: function families, "bivariate" and "univariate"
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
No hardware expertise; familiarity with spreadsheets (or statistical software) is helpful. Data can be loaded into calculators (requires graphlink hardware).
How hard was it for you to learn?
The matrix of mathematical concepts was self-explanatory; all hyperlinks worked exactly as expected.
Ability to meet my goals:
Algebra: Analyzing Linear Data; Algebra II: Parent Functions, Transformations of functions, Exponential Functions, Logarithmic Functions; PreCalculus: Functions, Operations with Logs; Probability & Statistics: Data and Distributions, Inference
Tool: Quantitative Environmental Literacy Project Review
