Let's see if I can clarify my vague instructions a little more…

You need to be working on two distinct documents (three if you count notes so you can repeat the processes).

**Document 1**

The first quiz grade will be the collection that I apparently did a horrible job of describing, at the very end of class. Let me try again here.

- There are 5 sets of data
- {(0,0), (2,5), (4,9)}
- {(5,4), (6,6), (10, 100)}
- {(2008,34), (2009,150), (2012,493)}
- {(5,17), (10,20), (18,25)}
- {(6,100), (10,50), (100,2)}

- For each set, I need to see its
- scatterplot from [http://www.mathcracker.com/scatter_plot.php]
- linear model equation from [http://www.xuru.org/rt/toc.asp]
- linear graph from [http://fooplot.com]
- polynomial model equation from [http://www.xuru.org/rt/toc.asp]
- polynomial graph from [http://fooplot.com]
- logarithmic model equation from [http://www.xuru.org/rt/toc.asp]
- logarithmic graph from [http://fooplot.com]

- It will count as a quiz, but you will have time to peer review before it's due. I'm initially looking at Wednesday by 5:00p.m. for final product. We'll answer more questions together Tuesday and Wednesday.

You'll probably begin noticing "issues" with the tools and the sets of data. I'll begin a topic in the Discussion Board [http://ischool.wikidot.com/forum:start] for you to voice those, and for others to share possible solutions. You do have to sign up for a wikidot, but I think this is my wiki of choice to have you develop your own math wiki. *more on this later* And I need someone to try this out to see if I need to invite you to use the Board.

Remember, all I asked is for you to try out the tools; if you get too frustrated, put this down and step away. We have time to work together on this.

**Document 2**

This the vaguely reference Superhero tie-in. Remember I asked you collect data relating the character, to money and a date.

For example

- (date of first appearance, original cost)
- (date of most valuable sell, sell price)

or you could gather data about the movies, if more than one exist.

- (date of first movie, first day
*or first week*revenue) - (date of most recent movie, first day
*or first week*revenue)

Right now this is as far as you need to go, but I alluded to the idea that you're going to develop a model that you can predict on, based on this data, so you might try it out in the math tools that you've been practicing on.

- We'll discuss the final product for this document on Tuesday, but it will look very much like the product for Document 1.
