Using data collected from research on short tailed albatross, students will observe, infer from, question and analyze data to learn if actual research hypotheses were supported. Students will become exposed to marine bird research techniques including satellite tracking and the use of Google Earth as a scientific tool. Students will be engaged in mathematical practice, including sense making, reasoning and precision.
