Description

This is a look at the geographic distribution of hemophilia. There is a sample of countries from each continent. The data was obtained from http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/h/hemophilia/stats-country.htm. 


The students will be able to interpret the data to determine the per capita rate of the occurrence of hemophilia remains relatively constant.

Have the students use the chrome books to group the data in the specific ways to correctly interpret the data.


Standard addressed:

3-LS3-1.

Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms. [Clarification Statement: Patterns are the similarities and differences in traits shared between offspring and their parents, or among siblings. Emphasis is on organisms other than humans.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include genetic mechanisms of inheritance and prediction of traits. Assessment is limited to non-human examples.]

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.       <!--[endif]-->Use the groupings detailed in the following questions to look at the data.

 

Data

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1.       <!--[endif]-->Use a pie chart and group by continent. Determine which continent has the most cases of hemophilia.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.       <!--[endif]-->Use a pie chart and group by country. Which country had the most incidents of hemophilia?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.       <!--[endif]-->Use a bar graph and group by continent. List the order of cases of hemophilia from least to greatest.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.       <!--[endif]-->Use a bar graph and group by continent. List the order of population from least to greatest.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.       <!--[endif]-->Use a scattergram with cases on the X axis and population on the Y axis. Draw a line-of-best-fit. Describe the correlation.

 

 

Analysis

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1.       <!--[endif]-->What is the relationship between population and # of cases of hemophilia? Use the results from the data to support the answer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.       <!--[endif]-->Explain the results of the order in # 3 and # 4.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.       <!--[endif]-->Use the line-of-best-fit to draw a conclusion on the per capita frequency of cases. Support the conclusion with data.
