Data collection is when you collect information on one topic. People collect data on certain things they want to know about. Some things people collect data for could be, stats for a sports game, for the number of friends you have, friends on a social networking site, and how much you exercise in a week. The chart of data I collected was to big to Jing capture so, I saved it as a PDF. You may view it below.

In the Lemonade Stand game I collected or lost money depending on my supplies, weather and contents of the lemonade. For example, if it was 90 degrees, I would raise the number of ice cubes and sugar. I would raise the number of ice cubes so people could cool down and more sugar for more taste. I would loss money on cold rainy days. This would happen because I needed to lower the price and not use as many supplies according to the weather.
- How often did you change your recipe? Why did you change your recipe? Everyday according to the weather because people wouldn't want ice cubes on a cold day, only on hot days.
- What worked best on hot days? Lots of ice cubes and sugar.
- What recipe was least successful for you? What do you think this is true? Less lemons and sugar because it didn't taste good no matter what the weather.
- If you were to do this again, what changes would you make? I would pay more attention to the weather.
- Describe your overall sales trends, comparing sales to the weather for the day. Each day if I changed the formula according to the weather, I could still make money. The tricks are to add ice on hot days, and lower it on cold days. Also, put in more sugar on hot days to make it popular and make more money.
Here is a lind graph I made with all the balances at the end of each day.
