Data Stations T2W10

Mr. Grimm decided to work out on Monday night. Before he began, he measured his heart rate. He measured it every 5 minutes and recorded the results into a table. Use the data in the table to create a Broken Line Graph, then write 3 questions from the graph.

Inner/Outer Circle

Here are the point sheets from the discussion:

Ignore the following, unless you want to see what I was thinking. Things changed from the time I drafted this post to the time class started.
Yesterday we had our first Inner/Outer Circle discussion. One of the things I'd like to do is make the process of moving the desks a little more organized, which can help people be able to think. Here is how I'd like to get the desks organized. Notice the landmark (beginning of the arrow) that can be used as a reference point from which to orient the desks.

Vitamins and Minerals?

So, we haven't talked much about Vitamins and Minerals. You have been tracking your food pretty consistently for about 9 days. You have a lot of data which you can now begin to analyze.

We will read through (no note-taking) the text pages 161-166. As you read, think about the foods you have been putting into your body (and into your Food Tracker).

When we are finished reading:

1. Enter your food into Food Tracker (you should be caught up through Wednesday Lunch)

2. Look back over your food tracker data and, using the information you just read, see if you can identify any vitamins or nutrients you might be getting too much of or too little of.

3. Identify 3 Vitamins or Minerals that your data shows you are lacking in (or getting too much of) and make a new blog post titled "How long can I go on like this?" Describe what might happen if you continue to get too much of each of the nutrients you selected. Include photos of deficiencies in vitamins that you can find on the internet.

Meal Planning

SuperTracker Homework (show me the sheet)

Planning the Future. It's difficult to get started, but it makes a world of difference in the outcome of situations.

Last night you were supposed to sketch out a rough draft plan for the food you are going to eat this week.


A Vlogger has a tip on how to start food journaling.

What did she tell us?

New Blog Post: Menu Planning
In this post, describe some of the ideas that go into building a good menu for the week. What types of foods should be left off of it? What types of foods should be put into it? What are some things that get in the way of planning meals for a week? Do you have any tips people could follow when planning out their meals? If you didn't do your homework, take the time now to sketch out this week's meals and include a photo of your SuperTracker Sheet in the post.

Weekend Calories

I am looking forward to seeing what happened to our diets over the weekend. I tracked my food closely, but it didn't guide my decision making all that much. I still ate the foods I normally eat, the only difference between this weekend and any other weekend was that I tracked my food this weekend and can actually see the data.

I hope you tracked your food this weekend as well...

  • Enter your food into SuperTracker for Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, Sunday 4th.
  • Screenshot your graphs again and post them into a new blog post titled "Weekend Calories".
ABOVE the screenshots, answer the questions below using a journal style of writing, not copying bullet points and answering questions. Try to point out interesting ideas or give original insights into the topic...

  • Describe several ways your diet changed over the weekend compared to your Monday through Thursday Diet.
  • How was your emotional health over the weekend?
  • In what ways does a person's attitude relate to the numbers? (How does attitude affect what you eat? provide examples)
  • After seeing the numerical results of your diet, finish this thought: On one hand, I'd like to _____, but that would mean ________.

Skit: What's for dinner?

When you are finished, get a new SuperTracker sheet. Your homework tonight is to talk with your family members (whoever is in charge of the food in your house) and sketch out a rough plan for your meals this week.

Today is the Analysis Day. You have been tracking your food for the last 4 days. Today I'd like you to compile your results and "Put it out there".

  1. Finish entering all of your Food Data on SuperTracker Monday through Thursday.
  2. Make a new blog post titled "Calories".
  3. Screenshot your graph and bar for each day, and paste them into the blog post above your questions. (See this blog post for example).
  4. Analyze the data and respond to these guiding questions on your blog post.

Questions to guide your analysis:

1. How many total calories did you eat Monday through Thursday?

2. List 3 trends you see.
3. Are you eating too few or too many calories?

4. What could you do next week to begin balancing out your diet and/or meet all of your targets?
