Statistic: Correlation

In this term in math, we kicked off with statistics. We covered some areas of Statistic such as, Analyzing categorical data, Summarizing quantitative data, Modeling data distributions and Exploring bivariate numerical data. One of the topics that was quite challenging to grasp was Exploring bivariate numerical data, specifically correlation and causation. To help us with this topic, we send out a survey with numerous quantitative categories — such as height, weight, number of pens, etc — to Liger students. Then, we used the data we collected from the survey as examples for us to study correlation by graphing scatter plots.

S’mores Lab

S’mores a delicious snack yet, a snack that can be used to showcase chemistry principles. One of the principles that can be showed is limiting and excess reactant. Besides learning about this concept in the classroom, our facilitator created a small lab to strengthen our knowledge of this concept. The objective of the lab was to make s’mores while calculating the limiting and excess reactant within the ingredient we had: chocolate bars, cracker, and marshmallow.
