The Steroids Era

We are constructing a graphical display and persuasive essay on the Steroids Era.  Here is a link to the article we read in class.  The 2001 and 1981 HR leaders can be found on ESPN's website (Top 20).

Here is what the kids need to do.  Presentations will take place throughout next week.

1.  Create a graphical display of your choice to display the number of home runs hit in 1981 vs. 2001. 

2.  Evaluate the data and write a persuasive essay defending your position on whether or not performance enhancing drugs changed the game of baseball for better or worse.  Cite evidence to support your position.

3.  You will present your graphical data display to the class and read your essay.

Types of graphical displays to consider:
Line Plot
Back-to-Back Stem & Leaf Plot
Box & Whisker Plots (10 extra points added)
