I. Understand the Problem

(a) Discuss how the graph of wavelengths versus eye sensitivity relates to this problem.

Answer:



(b) Write down a hypothesis for this problem.

Answer:



II. Devise a Plan

(c) Identify some possible strategies to test your hypothesis.

Answer:



(d) Are all strategies that you listed in step (c) equally viable? Might any of them yield a solution to the problem more readily than others? If so, why?

Answer:



(f) If you answered yes to the question in step (e), what are some possible sources for this data?

Answer:



(g) For assistance in testing your hypothesis, do you feel that the data given in the graphs could be displayed more effectively? In other words, would a bar chart, pie chart, or other form of display be a better way to graph this data?

Answer:



III. Look Back

(h) Discuss your opinion of graphing as a problem solving tool. When can it be used as an effective tool?

Answer:
