  1. 1. Blog Entries By: Pranay Gupta
  2. 2. 11-15-11Quantitative Data Analysis
  3. 3. What did I learn today?• I should use labels and answer what is being ask in the question.• I learned to always be specific to what quantities you use so that your reader knows what units you are talking about.• You use the delta mark to show difference of values. Also, Subtraction is Final Value – Initial Value = Answer.• I know you need to know and understand all values in order to answer a question• You need to know what the terms being used in the question mean in order to accurately answer what is being asked.• I also learned how to use delta and how to correctly write/type it• How to properly organize files in a directory or computer.
  4. 4. How did I learn it?• I learned to answer the question specifically, use labels, understand the question and how to accurately answer the question.• This I learned by analyzing a paper in class.• We analyzed the Pros and Cons of the answer.• We realized that being specific is extremely important and using correct values and definitions plays a major role in answer questions in a science class.• Showing us the parts done incorrectly, a standard for quality work was set.• We were given explanation of what you should do and what you shouldn’t do when a question is asked through deep analysis of answers of our classmates.• I learned it by looking at our answers in 4.1 and how Eva described clock reading and position in her data table.• I learned what physical quantities and units are.• By overlooking our mistakes on our group’s blog.
  5. 5. How did I use it in class?• I analyzed my paper that I did and made sure I didn’t make any mistakes and answer everything specifically and accurately.• I made sure all my units were correctly labeled and I understood all the terms mentioned in the question and overview.• I can use physical quantities and units to find units for items such as medicine or cooking items (Consumer Foods class).• I can find patterns in real life like Eva did while observing the motion of the ball.• I used the organization technique with two other websites I made.
  6. 6. How can I use this outside of the science classroom?• When I am talking to someone over the phone, I should be as descriptive as possible and make sure I am explaining what I am saying.• I make sure what I say is easy to understand and is enough so everyone understands what I am trying to tell them.• Also, to allow people to understand my ideas clearly and interpret what I am saying correctly.• I can use the proper/better way to link and organize files in any file directory and/or any website (FTP SERVER/DNS)
  7. 7. 11-16-11Line Graphs
  8. 8. What did I learn today?• What line graphs are and their purpose.• Independent and Dependent Axes• Mass is independent and volume is dependent• The trend line is different from a data line because a trend line shows similarities in data over time where a data line displays data.• Degrees Celsius is an acceptable unit for measuring temperature• The five rule is used to determine the difference between a physical quantity or a unit.• Different parts of a line graph
  9. 9. How did I learn it?• Studying the line graph given to us in class on the worksheet.• Deeply locking and understand the line graph parts and details.• The interactive learning course which Mr. Thomas guided us through.• The Guidelines given to us.• The explanations that were presented to us in class and the expectations were set for quality work.
  10. 10. How did I use it in class?• I can understand line graphs better now in class.• I can accurately make and organize line graphs the correct way• I can read and analyze data in a line graph with great detail• I can also see trends in data by creating a line graph
  11. 11. How can I use this outside of the science classroom?• I will be able to read line graphs for various types of data displayed in the form of a line graph.• I can look a stock graph or a diverse population line graph.• I can tell the difference between a trend line and a data line.• I can find similarities between data types and displays.• Almost always, I can use my knowledge to make and determine the purpose of a line graph.
  12. 12. 11-17-11Applying Line Graphs
  13. 13. What did I learn today?• How to use our understanding of line graphs to make a line graph.• Applying our knowledge from 3.2 and recreate a similar experiment in 4.3.• Line Graphs can show various data types.
  14. 14. How did I learn it?• We performed a similar experiment in 4.3 as we did in 3.2.• We stacked three books on top of each other and led a ramp down.• We rolled a ball down the ramp and dropped a sandbag at the position at which the ball was every second.• We recorded out data and measured the distance traveled by the ball using a meter stick where the sandbags were dropped every second.
  15. 15. How did I use it in class?• I used my data table to plot points on a line graph.• I used my previous knowledge of increments, intervals, axes and trend lines to display my data• Line Graphs can be used to show relationships (Time vs Position) or patterns(2 cm/second)• They show data (visually) in a way that you can understand it with great detail and analyze it better than a data table (a bunch of numbers)
  16. 16. How can I use it outside the science classroom?• If I experiment again, my data can be shown on a line graph to be albe to identify trends, rise in data, drop in data, or any other patterns.• If I am given a line graph, I can find trends, relationships, independent and dependant variables.• I can use line graphs to show (position vs time) relativity or recurring trends and/or data.• I can understand changes in stock markets or my GPA using the graphs provided to me (rise, drop or no change).
