This preview shows page 3 - 5 out of 7 pages.

Day 4: I will give you a review of constructing box-and-whisker plots. After the review, you will  break into teams and work on both the box-and-whisker plots and a document describing how the  plots were constructed and what they reveal about the prices in the retail outlets being compared.  Pairs of students will prepare the plots; the entire group must collaborate on producing the  document, since the two must be used together to make comparisons and since the process is  the same in each case. The plots and a draft of the document are due before class the following  day. The documents must be e-mailed to the instructor in time for her to make corrections. Both  the plots and the finished document will be part of the grade for the project. Day 5: Each team will decide which store from which to make the purchase based on the data  they have collected. Then, two students in each team will refine the corrected draft into a finished  document, while the other team members prepare two presentation graphics slides: A slide that tells what the team decided to buy, where the team decided to buy it, and  what it cost (a bullet list would be appropriate for this) A slide that shows a picture of the product and lists some of its features (an object box  and a bullet list would be appropriate for this)  After each pair of students is done, they will share with each other, decide on any needed changes to the  document or slides, and implement the changes. Then, the team will e-mail both to the instructor. The

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
