Teacher-Facing Resources

Type:Lesson

Estimated Time:15 minutes

Grades:6-8

Score Type:Automatically Graded

Work completed by a student will be automatically graded and the grade will be sent to the Learning Management System (LMS) gradebook

Available Language: English


Vocabulary: chart, data, data analysis, forecast, graph, spreadsheet, trend, trend line, variable


Primary Objectives:

  • Students learn to identify trends and forecast possibilities.

Secondary Objectives:

  • Students exercise sound reasoning in understanding.
  • Students understand the interconnections among systems.
  • Students interpret information and draws conclusions based on the best analysis.
  • Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. Students apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes.
  • Students uses digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media.
  • Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations.
