Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability Summary
Friday, July 5, 2002
Today the FATHOM group worked on exercises from Chapter One of Gail Burrill's rough draft, creating the missing "Figures" in the document with FATHOM representations. We investigated "Collecting Measures" and "Filtering Data," "Plot Value" and "Editing Formulas". Problems surfaced (which were later solved) with creating conditional statements, and the difference between inspecting the sample of rectangles and inspecting the measures from the sample of rectangles.
We then met to discuss overall goals for our group, debrief on where we are, and report back on the PCMI Problem submissions.
Getting graphics into our "Problem," "Connect" software works on the PC's, and FATHOM works on the MAC. We are still investigating the other possibilities.
