AIDS | The total number of cases of AIDS in the USA in 4 month intervals from 1982. | Increasing, Concave Down |

ARROW | An arrow was shot from a bow. The height was measured as a function of the distance traveled. | Increasing, Decreasing, Concave Down |

BADMIN | This data set was obtained by dropping a badminton shuttlecock and recording its distance as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

BRAKE | The distance in feet a car travels when braking in an emergency stop as a function of the velocity of the car at the time the brakes are applied. | Increasing, Concave Up |

BULLET | A bullet was shot from a rifle. The velocity was measured as a function of distance traveled. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

CAR | A car with manual transmission was driven on a long straight horizontal road at 55 mph. The car was taken out of gear and let roll to a stop. The time at which the car was traveling at 55, 50, ... , 10, 5, and 0 mph was recorded. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

COFFEE | Some students measured the temperature of coffee to see how rapidly it cooled. The coffee temperature is shown as a function of the time. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

CRAB | The claw weight versus body weight of fiddler-crabs. | Increasing, Concave Up |

FREEFALL | This shows data that correspond to a sky diver in free fall in a stable spread-eagle position when falling from rest. It shows the sky diver's distance fallen as a function of the time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

IRELAND | The population of Ireland from 1780 to 1920. | Increasing, Decreasing, Concave Up |

JUMPS | The results of an experiment in which people fell freely from rest from various heights. It shows the distance fallen in feet as a function of time in seconds. | Increasing, Concave Up |

KENYA | The population of Kenya for the period 1955 to 1990 in 5 year intervals. | Increasing, Concave Up |

LEWIS | The times achieved every 10 meters by Carl Lewis in the 100 meter final of the World Championship in Rome in 1987. | Increasing, Concave Up |

LIZARD | Experiments have been performed where a lizard is encouraged to run as fast as possible, starting from rest. The distance run is then measured as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

NICOTINE | Nicotine Sulphate is introduced into a closed room containing mosquitoes to determine how efficiently the chemical kills the insects. This shows the killing efficiency - the proportion of dead mosquitoes - for various doses. | Increasing, Sigmoidal |

PLAICE | The results of an experiment relating the weight of plaice to its length. | Increasing, Concave Up |

PROBE | A student held a temperature probe firmly between her thumb and forefinger while the temperature of the probe was recorded. This shows the temperature as a function of the time. | Increasing, Concave Down |

PUPILS1 | This shows the result of an experiment in which 10 subjects were briefly exposed to a bright light, causing their pupils to dilate, and then the diameter of each pupil was measured as the pupil expanded. | Increasing, Concave Down |

RANGE | The results of an experiment recording the range of a projectile as a function of the initial angle of elevation. | Increasing, Decreasing, Concave Down |

SPHERE | The data set was obtained by dropping a Styrofoam ball and recording its distance as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

STURGEON | A biologist measured the length of a sturgeon over a 21 year period. This shows the length in centimeters as a function of the time in years. | Increasing, Concave Down |

TOLUENE | The vapor pressure as a function of temperature of Toluene. | Increasing, Concave Up |

USAPOP | The population of the USA from 1790 to 1990 in 10 year intervals. | Increasing, Concave Up |
