Teach your 6th grade data and statistics unit with the comprehensive set of notes, graphing activities, and data and statistics assessments! This unit is designed to fit neatly in your students' interactive notebooks while also providing easy to copy and use pages that take almost no time to prep.
The first part of the unit covers how to create a read data using leaf-and-stem plots, dot plots, histograms, and box plots. Students use pre-made graphs and charts to learn about the important parts of each type of graph and also create their own using statistical data.
The second part of the unit teaches how to find the measures of center: mean, median, and mode. Students analyze the benefits and limitations of each as a measure of central tendency and practice finding these measures.
The third part of the unit is over measures of spread and variation. For Texas TEKS classrooms, this includes range and interquartile range (IQR) and just for Common Core classes, use the mean absolution deviation page to teach your students how to find the M.A.D.
The final part of the unit allows students to practice analyzing the shape of data using symmetry, skew, gaps, clusters, and outliers. With tons of graph examples, students will learn how to visually identify these data elements and how it can affect the measures of center.
