What's going on?

Today, our campers started the morning by exploring the concept of correlation, investigating methods of of displaying relationships (e.g., ice cream sales vs. temperature) using scatter and fitted plots. Teams worked competitively to match the most variable pairings with the appropriate scatterplot indicating positive, negative, or no correlation. For the second session of the day, campers developed relative frequency tables, calculating the percentage of vegetarians and non-vegetarians given a common food preference (e.g. bread, meat). In our afternoon activities, campers had gym time with Tyler Colomb, a Heath and Fitness Coordinator at CDC Lifestyle Fitness Centers, learned how to make Origami with Leah Chiappa, a rising 6th grader and learned how to present data via public speaking from Dr. Renee Gindi a Statistician who is also a Toastmasters Member.
