Week 9 (Unit 3: Statistics)
Research Cycle
Research Feasibility (Can I answer my question in a reasonable amount of time with the resources available?)
Experimental Design vs. Observational Designs and other study types
Treatment and Controls
Variables of Interest
Ethics (Voluntariness, Informed Consent, and Beneficence!) Here are some movies based on true events:
  • The Stanford Prison Experiment (based on the work of Phillip Zombardo)
  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (based on the story of Henrietta Lacks)
  • The Tuskegee Syphilis Study
Week 10 (Unit 3: Statistics)
The Placebo Effect
Primary and Secondary Data

Week 11 (Unit 3: Statistics)
Categorical vs. Quantitative Data

Box-Whisker Plots
Statistical Bias

Week 12 (Unit 4: Using Recursion in Models and Decision Making)
Univariate vs. Bivariate Data
Discrete vs. Continuous 
Review of Scatterplots (Reading a Scatterplot)
Positive/Negative, Strong/Weak Correlation

Week 13 (Unit 4: Using Recursion in Models and Decision Making)
Trend Lines and Estimating Lines of Best Fit

Week 14 (Unit 5: Using Functions in Models and Decision Making)
Common Functions and their Graphs. We are used to drawing lines of best fit, but there are curves that may be more appropriate.
  • Linear (Initial value, Constant rate of change)
  • Quadratic (A single minimum or maximum value, has an axis of symmetry)
  • Sine (Amplitude, Period, Axis of Symmetry, Frequency)
  • Exponential (Rate of change grows (or shrinks) rapidly)
  • Logistic (Initial value, Exponential, Dampened, Equilibrium)
  • Piecewise (May look like a series of steps, connected or disconnected graphs)

Week 15 (Unit 5: Using Functions in Models and Decision Making)
Infectious Disease Simulation Activity (SIR Model Simulator)
Step and Piecewise Functions

Week 16 (Unit 6: Decision Making in Finance)
Compounded Interest
Continuously Compounded Interest
More Practice (Only work on the 2nd page #3-5)

Week 17: Finalize Research Projects

Course Project

Step 1: Hand in your ten potential research questions.
Step 2: Review teacher feedback, ethics video, and revise your questions. Reduce to just five questions.
Step 3: Decide on your research question. Hand in your potential study design.
Step 4: Review teacher feedback, design videos, finalize study design.
Step 5: Prospective Study Presentations. Revise study as necessary.
Step 6: Collect your data. 
Step 7: Analyze your data and create your data displays.
Step 8: Final Presentation (Presentation Template
