### Reaction Time 1 (Graphs and Statistics)

Test your reaction time by catching a falling ruler or clicking a target. Create a data set of experiment results, and calculate the range, mode, median, and mean of your data. Data can be displayed on a list, table, bar graph or dot plot. The Reaction Time 1 Student Exploration focuses on range, mode, and median.

#### LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

• Read and interpret data on a list, table, bar graph, and dot plot.
• Determine basic statistics including range, mode, and median of a data set.
• Compare data sets from related experiments.
• Draw conclusions based on data.

#### VOCABULARY:

• bar graph, data, dot plot, median, mode, range

### User Lesson Materials (3):

• EL Staff
##### Reaction Time and z-scores

This activity uses the reaction time data to perform a standard deviation and z-score to compare sight vs. sound reactions.

Designed For:  Algebra I, Math 8

• ##### Nervous System Physiology

I used this for my upper classman Physiology as an introduction to the nervous system and it worked well.

Designed For:  Biology

• ##### Scientific Method with Reaction Time

Using this Gizmo, students can collect, graph and analyze REAL TIME DATA, and have fun doing it!
