TEACHER'S GUIDE

Distribute the complete datasets to the class and lead a discussion about the difference in the three areas, and why it is important for the class/scientists to look at data from forested, suburban, and urban water areas.

Discussion

Before the slideshow when students are just holding the data: 

“It is now your turn to work with the data. You will graphically represent and analyze the data that Dr. Kashual collected by studying forested, urban, and suburban areas.“

Question:  What type of data are we looking at? How are the datasets different?

Answers

  1. Seasonal data
  2. Forested/Suburban/Urban – different density of roads
