Animal Species Comparison

Name___________________________                                            Section_______

Purpose: This activity will allow the student to compare the numbers of different types of animal species.

Material: Chrome book,  worksheet, and pencil

Procedure:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1.       <!--[endif]-->Navigate to the web site http://isenseproject.org/projects/1566

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.       <!--[endif]-->Go to the data section and select only vertebrates. Go to visualization

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.       <!--[endif]-->In visualize select pie chart and group by species name. This should correspond to the saved visualization of Animal species comparison vertebrate pie chart.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.       <!--[endif]-->List the order and percentages in the data area below.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.       <!--[endif]-->Return to data section and select only invertebrates. Return to visualization. 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.       <!--[endif]-->In visualize select pie chart and group by species name. This should correspond to the saved visualization Animal species comparison invertebrates pie chart.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.       <!--[endif]-->List the order and percentages in the data area below.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.       <!--[endif]-->Return to data selection and select both vertebrates and invertebrates. Return to visualize.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.       <!--[endif]-->In visualize group by species name. This should correspond to the saved visualization Animal species comparison pie chart.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.   <!--[endif]-->List the top four species and percentages in the data area below.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.   <!--[endif]-->Select pie chart and group by data name set.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.   <!--[endif]-->List the percentages in the data area below.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.   <!--[endif]-->Answer the analysis questions.
