Using Data to Tell a Story at Hopewell

Posted October 17th, 2016

Students in Mrs. Hornick’s 6th grade class are breaking down the Rio Olympics by numbers.  Students chose a sport and then looked at the data behind it.  For instance, they investigated the scores in diving or golf, the medal count for water polo or times in swimming.  Students then had to decide what story that data tells – like the golf field wasn’t dominated by a single country and what was the hardest hole for golfers.  Students then took the information and created an info graphic (check them out below).  A way to study numbers and use them to make an argument.
