Scientists use math to discover the number of squids eaten and the sizes of these squids. Let's explore how these calculations area In this resource learn about the procedures scientists use and perform the same calculations they do.

Teachers, for the full resource on Science Friday's website.



Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions.
For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.
Graph exponential and logarithmic functions, showing intercepts and end behavior, and trigonometric functions, showing period, midline, and amplitude.
Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).
Summarize categorical data for two categories in two-way frequency tables. Interpret relative frequencies in the context of the data (including joint, marginal, and conditional relative frequencies). Recognize possible associations and trends in the data.
