Reviewer Comments:

In this activity, LEVEL students investigate Marcus Vitruvius’s proposal that a person’s height and their arm span are approximately equal. Students collect and record data, then construct a scatterplot and overlay a line of best fit. After discussing the data and trends, Michael Phelp’s data is added to the existing scatterplot and kids can analyze this addition. Throughout the lesson, students are challenged to think critically about the conclusions they can and cannot draw from the data. This investigation follows the four components of statistical problem solving put forth in the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Report as well as the Common Core Standards for Mathematics in Grades 6 - 8. The teacher materials are detailed and clear. The lessons include a detailed overview and instructions, suggestions for student assessment and extensions, and answer keys. This well-organized and thoughtfully prepared lesson is immediately useful in the middle school math / science classroom.
