🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 19th, 2024. Join today!


Students will analyze data about a movie series, create graphs, note trends, and make a recommendation: should we make another movie in this series?

⚠️ This video is being updated to reflect changes to


  1. Students select a series of 5-10 movies and look up their box office returns as well as critical ratings.
  2. Next, they adjust each movie's box office returns for inflation so that we can fairly compare the films.
  3. Now, students will create a scatter plot to look for a relationship between the movies' financial and critical success.
  4. Students will note trends and outliers and then make a prediction about how well another movie in the series would do.
  5. Next, students will make graphs showing the critical ratings and box office returns of the series over time.
  6. Finally, they will make a recommendation: should we make another movie in this series?
