** The search engine works best with simple, broad searches. Instead of seaching for "what is the link between education and incarceration", search under "prisons" and see if any of the results contain information about education (which some of them do).

6. Did Falling Wages and Employment Increase US Imprisonment? (internal link)
Abstract: This paper studies the effects of wages and employment on men's prison admission rates in the US from 1983 to 2001. It finds that there is a significant increased in educational inequality amongst incarcerated men, and regression analysis also demonstrates the negative efects of wages and employment on black men's incarceration.

Category: Correlation, Data Analysis, Scatterplots, Regression, Line of Best Fit, Association, Graphing, Inference, Interpretation, Averag



8. Global Child Poverty (external link)
Abstract: A PowerPoint Presentation on the status of global child poverty. It looks at things like mortality rates, compares wealthy/poor countries, and discusses various commitments (and failures) that different nations have made to eradicate this problem.
Category: Data, Scatterplots



9. Graph of HIV Rates vs. Income, Worldwide (by Country) (internal link)
Abstract: A Scatterplot graph comparing HIV prevalance rates and Gross National Income (per capita) for over 100 countries around the world.
Category: Scatterplots, Mapping, Graphing



10. Jail, Education, and Opportunities (internal link)
Abstract: This provides an overview of an activity that students can do to learn more about the demographics and trends within the U.S. Prisons System by having them research data from the Department of Corrections and construct tables and graphs to make inferences to predict future data.
Category: Graphing, Data, Statistics, Scatterplots



11. Math, SATs, and Racial Profiling (external link)
Abstract: The author writes about how he and his students have used technology to investigate racial profiling and to analyze the relationship of family income level to scores on standardized tests.
Category: Histograms, Probability, Scatterplots, Correlation



12. Neighborhood History Through Mathematical Analysis (internal link)
Abstract: The purpose of this project is to build an interest in mathematics and history by doing mathematical analysis of historical data, rather than textbook data, that the students find themselves from primary historical documents.

16. Rising Rent (internal link)
Abstract: A short, 1-3 day set of lessons about Gentrification in Brooklyn. These lessons help students understand the term gentrification and looks at changes in rent in different zip codes to understand its effects. Math involved includes percents, percent growth, scatterplot graphing, Line of Best Fit, and Correlation.
Category: Percents, Percent Growth, Graphing, Scatterplots, Correlation
