PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Histograms, stem-and-leaf plots (stem and leaf plots), frequency tables, box-and-whisker plots (box plots / box and whisker plots) -- Represent the same set of data with all displays. Measures of Central Tendency (Mean, Median, Mode) and Measures of Variability (Range and Interquartile Range) are also included.

This combo includes a data display template, a matching activity, and a worksheet.

►The Multiple Data Displays Template is useful for creating a frequency table, stem-and-leaf plot, histogram, box-and-whisker plot all for the same set of data. There is also room for the measures of central tendency and the measures of variability on this one-page template. The template is NOT instructional; it is a convenient page of the bones of the displays to help students create displays quicker and more accurately. Please see the thumbnail for an image. The template can be used repeatedly for different data sets. The data is not provided for the template.

►The Data Display Sort Activity gives students 4 stem-and-leaf plots, 4 histograms, 4 box-and-whisker plots, and 4 sets of measures of central tendency & variability that correspond with 4 groups of test scores. Students are to correctly sort the given displays/measures into four groups.

►The Medians of Frequency Tables Worksheet is a 12-question practice sheet. Students identify the medians of frequency tables.

A teacher guide is included (shown in preview). Note, the activities really shine when coupled with good teacher- prompted discussion and student-justification of choices (as mentioned in the teacher guide). Without a little teacher-magic this combo can also just be like completing a souped-up worksheet. But I sense that you have some magic in you :)

Teacher tested; student approved.
Algebra Simplified

What makes this product a must-have?
Killer Value: Consider that you get 3 for the price of 1.
Time Saver: The data displays in the sorting activity alone would take a ton of planning time to recreate.
Novel Practice: Mixing-up that traditional worksheet perks up kids. I even had a student call it fun.
Promotes Connections: Students are encourage to draw connections between the data displays and measures of central tendency.
