Olympics: Winter vs Summer Medal Count
Students will create and analyze a graph showing countries' winter and summer Olympic medals.
- Students pick a handful of countries and then predict which ones will be stronger in winter or summer or about even.
- Next, they find the summer and winter medal totals for each country.
- Then, they create a graph and plot each country using the medal data as coordinates.
- Finally, they check their predictions and then give each country an award based on their medal counts.
