Students will complete a frequency table and histogram that corresponds to data collected through the use of rolling two dice (Statistics Lesson). To get the data for this frequency table, students will roll two dice and multiple the numbers rolled together. The product of these two rolls will be the data point. Students will write down each product, rolling their dice a total of 45 times. Students will then fill in the frequency table and graph on a histogram. We used an online dice. This helps avoid having students drop and lose dice all over the room. It also keeps students focused. *Google “Glencoe Virtual Dice”. Select the Virtual Manipulatives choice. Under Manipulatives find "Number Cubes". Directions to finding dice is included on top of handout.
Great practice on gathering data, filling in frequency table and plotting on a histogram.
