## Reflection: Student Ownership More with Conditional, Joint, and Marginal Frequencies - Section 2: Investigation

Part of this activity required students to write two statements about their data.  The major goal in this lesson was to encourage students to support their statement mathematically.  If you compare the statements written in student_work1.jpg and student_work2.jpg you can see that one set of statements pulls data directly out of the table.  This was really what I wanted to see, students supporting their statements with data.  On the other hand, in the second chart, the students makes a claim saying "most females prefer other" but does not point to the evidence in the chart to back up their claim.
