Investigating the Details of the Demise of Mr. Spud

Mr. McGee and Ms. Marshman’s Science Classes were recently assisting our SRO, Officer Sexton, with data compilation and comparative analysis in the forensic investigation of the death of (Alright… it’s just a potato!) Mr. Spud. After taking timed temperature readings, students created a graph illustrating dependent and independent variable data. The graphed data was used to compare to a video of the incident that Officer Sexton had in their efforts to determine the time of ‘the incident.’
