# Some Examples of Embedded Data Analysis

There are many ways to use embedded data analysis in online curriculum materials.

## Mathematics

- Behaviors of the Mean and Median

Experiment with dragging points in a dot plot to see what happens to the mean and median when the data changes.
- Patterns in the Numbers Chart

A grid of numbers gets colored according to hour choice of how many in a row and what number property to use.
- Fitting Lines to Data

There are two exercises here, the first showing a possible relationship between latitude and temperature for eight cities, and the second giving you a chance to look for relationships in data for 1249 baseball players. (These two exercises draw from Algebra I, section 4-3.)
- Modeling a Geometric Sequence with a Function

Play around with the family of geometric sequences that represent a tournament. Come up with a function that models the relationship between teams left and round number. (This is based on a Real World Example in section 7-7 of the Algebra 1 CCSS eBook.)
- Planetary Function

Find the quantitative relationship between the distance of a planet from the sun and the time it takes to go around the sun.

## Biology

- Natural Selection

Manipulate sliders to simulate three kinds of selection pressure. (This is from Glencoe Biology 2012 eTeacherEdition, page 434, shown at right.)
- Mammals

Improve your graph reading skills and learn some interesting things about mammals.

## Chemistry

- Elements

Investigate relationships between properties of elements paying special attention to those that exhibit periodicity.

## Physical Science

- Heating and Cooling

Given the data from heating a pan of water to boiling and then allowing it to cool, describe what took place quantitatively.

## History

- Presidents

Discover many interesting facts and trends about the nation's presidents.

## Economics

- Time Series

Explore a bunch of economic time series both in current dollars and constant dollars.
