This activity was created for middle school math stations on statistics. It is brief (one page), but will give your students the opportunity to each complete a unique set of problems. They choose a card with a set of numerical data, analyze it, and compare with another student. This way when they ask each other for help, it cannot be, “What’s the answer to number one?” but rather, “Can you explain how to do number one?” The conversations and explanations that arise are great.
This activity is included in the BUNDLE Probability and Statistics at 15% off, the BIG BUNDLE for Seventh Grade First Semster at 20% off, and the BEST BUNDLE for Seventh Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar variabilities, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of variability. For example, the mean height of players on the basketball team is 10 cm greater than the mean height of players on the soccer team, about twice the variability (mean absolute deviation) on either team; on a dot plot, the separation between the two distributions of heights is noticeable.
