Students will create a poster using sports statistics. Depending on the time of year, you may want to use football scores, basketball scores, data from the Olympics, etc. Students will use the internet (or you can print out statistics for them) to find sports data.
The students really buy into th
Measures of Central Tendency Project
Students will conduct a survey to collect, organize, analyze and display data with a box-and-whisker plot and a histogram and use the data display to show frequency distribution.

Engage your students in their study of statistics as they compete in self-created Olympic style events. This project will help them discover meaning and apply concepts including measures of central tendency, quartiles, outliers, variance, standard deviation, z-scores, box plots, histograms, normal a
I created this project as a way for my 6th graders to practice their statistical skills. They loved it! They get to pretend to be epidemiologists studying a virus outbreak that is turning people into zombies. It's a fantastic way for students to see how statistics is used in the "real world" - they

This real-world math project asks students to determine mean, median, mode, and range for a variety of actual statistics from the 2020 Major League Baseball season. Perfect to excite any sports enthusiasts! It is designed for google classroom with distance learning in mind, though also includes pr
These are guided notes for a lesson on measures of central tendency including mean, median, mode, and range.
There are several examples in the notes and the same data sets are used to show each measure of central tendency.
I have also included a teacher key to show you what to fill in the blanks
Your purchase comes with the rubric and checklist pictured above, I had scholars get their checklist signed after each part, when all signatures were collected they were given their poster paper. This project allows scholars to come up with their own statistical question, collect data from their pee

An Activity to review and practice finding Measures of Central Tendency. (mean, median, mode, range and outliers)
Students will collect data by measuring the length of their body parts. In groups, they will find the measures of central tendency of the data, determine the most appropriate data repre
This is a 1-2 day project aimed at introducing a statistics class to Excel (or Numbers) who are familiar with Pie Charts, Bar Charts, Measures of Central Tendency, and Standard Deviation. The students will input data (included) into Excel (on fires in restaurants), form their own Bar Charts and Pie
This statistics project has students exploring home prices and using their knowledge of mean, median, standard deviation, histograms, box and whisker plots, and bell curves to make predictions and inferences about the data. This project is provided in a word document to allow the teacher the ability
"How Tall is the "Average" Seventh Grader?" is a worksheet that requires students to gather data and calculate all the measures of central tendency based on the students height. I had four stations in the room set up where students first measured how tall they were in inches and then recorded their
In this project, students conduct a statistical investigation. Students come up with two categorical questions and two numerical questions. They collect data by surveying their peers, graph data by hand or on the computer, analyze data by calculating some measures of central tendency and variance, a

In this activity, students must research a set of numerical data and analyze it using measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode, range). Then will then create a box-and-whisker plot of their set of data.
For this activity, students will need access to the internet so that they can research a
This is a 23-page packet that walks students step by step through a project where they collect samples of data that accurately represent the entire populations they are collected from, and then compare related samples using measures of central tendency, measures of variation, and visual methods in o

This project is great for use at the end of a unit on graphs and surveys! The student will need to design and conduct a survey, making sure to avoid bias in their survey questions and methods. Then, the student will collect and analyze their data using measures of central tendency and display the da
In this data and statistics project, students play the same "Snake" to gather data. Using their own data AND their teacher's data, they will calculate and compare the measures of variation and central tendency. Additionally, students will analyze the data by creating box plots and histograms, as wel
This data and statistics project is a fun practical, real-life way to analyse and compare data by making use of a box-and-whisker and a scatter plot. Students will be able to see the power of these plots, especially when used to compare two data sets or two variables.Data, Statistics, Box-and-Whiske
Students collect their own quantitative data with this exciting project. The collection does not take long after which students calculate the measures of central tendency - mean, median, mode, Q1, Q3, min, max, range and upper and lower outliers (extremes). The handout contains the formulas students
