Today was spent preparing our Olympians for competition – the final vital statistics were recorded and trainers completed a dossier of biographical information about their potatoes. Students have chosen the countries that their potatoes will compete for and found out about the event they are responsible for organising. We are using a wiki and Google Docs forms and spreadsheets to share our results of the events. Students will be required to answer the following questions:
- What are the mean heights, girths, masses and volumes of Hawkesdale potatoes and of St. Aloysius potatoes?
- What are the median heights, girths, masses and volumes of both school’s potatoes?
- What is the range of heights, girths, masses and volumes of both school’s potatoes?
- Who had the tallest, shortest, widest, narrowest, heaviest, lightest, biggest and smallest potatoes?
We hope to be able to do a Skype link-up with St. Aloysius this week, when we can celebate the results of our inaugural Potato Olympics!
