Team Assignments
All measurements will be taken twice and recorded twice. The first time around:
  • Team A will measure the x-coordinates (the eastings) of the set of computers (i.e., the distances from the west wall to the “X” on the sticky notes).
  • Team B will measure the y-coordinates (the northings) of the set of computers (i.e., the distances from the south wall to the “X” on the sticky notes).
  • Team C will measure the armspreads and heights of the people in the class.
  • Team D will record the data from the teams A, B, and C on the board and in computer files.
When this process is complete, the boards will be erased and the computer files sent to the instructor. Then:
  • Team A will measure the armspreads and heights of the people in the class.
  • Team B will record the data from the other teams on the board and in computer files.
  • Team C will measure the x-coordinates (the eastings) of the set of computers and will measure the width of the room.
  • Team D will measure the y-coordinates (the northings) of the set of computers and will measure the length of the room.
These data sets will also be e-mailed to the instructor.
The instructor will put the four data files in a shared area on the class computer disk. Students will examine the pairs of data files for errors and inconsistencies.
