Title: A Statistical Study By Adolescent Students On Relevant Issues
Url: http://www.yale.edu/ynhti/curriculum/guides/1985/8/85.08.03.x.html
Creator: Hankin, Marjorie
Publisher: Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
Description: The measurement of adolescents can intrigue students when the subject is themselves and the measurements and statistics obtained concern topics which interest them. This unit relates to pregnant adolescent students with common interests, but could easily be adapted to any teenage group with different primary concerns. The lesson plans at the end of the paper are of a general nature, but the main thrust is still toward using data which the students provide to make the study more meaningful to them. Lesson plans introduce students to surveys, recording data, and graphing bar graphs, histograms, and frequency curves; the use of mean, median, and mode, using class attendance numbers; and correlation studies between two variables (height and weight).
