Main Activity

The slides take learners through a peer evaluation activity where they ask questions of each other’s data and visualisation.

In this lesson students will test another student’s key to make sure that they create a data box that looks the same as in the homework.

Then students will look to see if they can find an interesting cluster, grouping, or spread of data in their visualisation. Is there and interesting answer to the question that they created in lesson 2.
