PREDICTION: This is your best GUESS as to what will occur within the four days of the project. Look at the questions in the conclusions to help you develop your hypothesis. Fill out the prediction sheet. (Turned in today)

Data charts and pictures: Keep a careful log of your creature’s changes. Make drawings often as you collect your data. You must trace your creature before submerging it in water, twice while it is growing, when you take it out of the water to begin shrinking, and twice while it is shrinking.

Your Individual Graphs

Your data with a connected line graph (piecewise linear function) – one for length, one for width, and one for thickness. Have the computer draw another graph graphing the derivatives of your piecewise linear function. Determine the rates of change along the graph and add this information to the information in your spreadsheet.
