Essential Learning Event 2

Students make sense of patterns and relationships in observations and data through representation, analysis, and interpretation.

Students make sense of observations or collected data and determine how to represent the data. The presentation of data helps reveal patterns and relationships and allows results to be communicated with others. Student analysis of data helps bring out its meaning and relevance so that it may be used as evidence for the phenomenon or design problem. Interpretation of data helps students identify significant features and patterns, use mathematics to represent relationships between variables, and take into account sources of error.
