Product Description
This product provides students the opportunity to analyze data presented in different ways. By making calculations and analyzing data, students make conjectures and justify them using mathematical reasoning and evidence!

What is included?
This product contains 8 student work pages. Each work page contains a set of data displayed graphically with accompanying questions. The data displays included are 2 dot plots, 2 bar graphs, 2 frequency tables, and 2 stem-and-leaf plots. Students are required to calculate mean, median, mode, and range from each data display. Students must analyze the data to determine the best measure of central tendency and justify their reasoning. Other questions are asked specific to the data display. For example, “How many total data points are shown in the stem-and-leaf plot?”

When should this worksheet be used?
Students should know how to find mean, median, mode, and range before beginning.

How will this worksheet enhance your lesson?
This product veers away from basic problems where students find measures of central tendency and spread from a simple list of data. By presenting data in different graphical representations, students must interpret the data before making calculations and conjectures. Finally, this product allows students to see how using measures of central tendency and spread can be useful in daily life by placing data sets in context.

This activity is aligned with common core standards 6.SP.A.2, 6.SP.A.3, 6.SP.B.4, 6.SP.B.5, 6.SP.B.5.A, 6.SP.B.5.B, 6.SP.B.5.C, and 6.SP.B.5.D.
