Shift in life expectancy part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Students will collect data and graph the ages of a sampling of people in their area looking at 2 different time periods. Collection of data will be done at a local cemetery and generated graphs will be compared to determine any change in life expectancy. Discussion about reasoning for the shift will conclude the activity.
