Can you come up with possible explanations for
the few stray values that occur along the growth
- First thing you will need to do today is to
write down your initial hypotheses.
- Next you will need to collect data from everyone who
measured an eye.
- Plot your data on the chart provided.
- Now write down your initial analyses.
