PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet is designed to be customized by the user to fit his/her unique carnival-style game to play in the classroom to collect data. I hung a fake $1,000,000 bill from the strap of an old t.v. stand and had students throw 10 paper balls to see how many times they could knock it down. It also works well with paper balls and a trash basket to see how many "baskets" they can make.

You could also change the number of contestants in the table, though it is a good idea to have more than 10 so that you have a good amount of data. At the same time, 15 or more takes a lot of time for the activity so plan accordingly.

Once you do the game and collect data in the table, you then do a dot plot and histogram, either individually, in groups, or together as a whole group.

Then students answer how you can find the number of observations in the data in 3 different ways (the table, dot plot, and histogram) make sure they describe HOW to find it.

Next it asks for the 5 number summary, which can be guided by the teacher if it is a new topic or done independently or in groups if they are already familiar. Then you make a box plot and compare the median with the mean as a better representation of the data.

The last two questions relate to science and has them think about what can affect the data and how they can test their hypotheses about it.
