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.
