### 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
