  9. Earthquake Graph

    May 16, 2016 by Mr Richo

    EARTHQUAKE GRAPH

    Over the next few weeks in class, we will be looking at statistics. Today, I want to see what you know about using statistics and data to create your own graphs.

    Visit this website http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/year/byyear.php , it tells you the largest earthquakes from the year 1990 – 2014. Using this data, create a graph displaying the varying magnitude of each earthquake, per year.

    For example, the largest earthquake in 1993 recorded a magnitude of 7.8 in comparison to the 2003 earthquake 10 years later that recorded a magnitude of 8.3.

    Once you have graphed the varying magnitude, write down 5 statements according to your data – for example, ‘According to the graph, the earthquake with the highest magnitude is ______’. You may wish to take this further and graph the damage done by each quake..

    You will need to think about the following:

    • What is the most appropriate graph to use?
    • How will you label each axis?
    • Create a rough draft first.
    • Now use grid paper and create a final display piece.

    Don’t forget to reference the website.


  10. LENGTH

    February 10, 2016 by Mr Richo

    How accurately can you make a 30 cm ruler? Use a strip of cover paper to create your own ruler from memory. Remember to evenly space the mm and cm increments.

    Now for the real challenge.  Make 1 metre. Make folds to start you off. For example find the half way mark.Picture 1

    How accurate was your ruler?  Compare with the real thing.
