Nitrates And Water Quality (Part 2: Analyzing & Visualizing Data)

Subject: Chemistry,Environmental Science
Time: 45-55 minutes
Level: High School

Overview

Students will use Google Sheets/Excel to analyze public water data to to inform decision making regarding nitrate water pollution. Students will develop skills in analyzing and visualizing of data from a large public dataset.

Student Outcomes:

Knowledge

  • Know Google Sheets/Excel is a computational tool that can be used to analyze data sets.

  • Know a few computational tools can be used to create visualizations.

Skills

  • Use computational tools (counting and statistical tests) to analyze large data sets.

  • Use computational tools to create data visualizations.

Epistemologies

  • Understand that computational tools make it possible to analyze much larger, data sets (seeing patterns, trends).

  • Understand that computational tools allow us to represent large data sets in ways that are interactive and dynamic, and reveal patterns we might not otherwise be able to notice.
