Students read an ancient account of the statues of athletes at Olympia and extract from it a set of data presented in a spreadsheet. After analyzing the data using tables, graphs, and maps, the students use quantitative reasoning combined with qualitative arguments to write a paper about how Pausanias' account of the statues reflects both his own biases and the cultural norms of ancient Greek athletics.
