Do Bristlebacks Cluster? : A Project for Middle Secondary Years

Do Bristlebacks Cluster? : A Project for Middle Secondary Years

This article, created by P.J. Page, describes a project from biology. The purpose was to form an opinion on whether populations of Daphnia and Bristlebacks (Thysanura, small water creatures), cluster or whether they position themselves substantially at random. The author structures the lesson in this fashion: introduction, the project, obtaining the data, and looking at results. Charts and graphs are employed to help illustrate these concepts more thoroughly. While the focus of this lesson is more elementary, it could still provide as a nice example of statistics applied to biology.
