Are you looking for a real-world introduction to your Eureka Math program that energizes and entertains your students while they learn the concepts? Then this PowerPoint program is for you!
Develop understanding of statistical variability.
6.SP.A.1 Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
6.SP.A.2 Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution
which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.
6.SP.A.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
Summarize and describe distributions.
6.SP.B.4 Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
6.SP.B.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by: a. Reporting the number of observations.
b. Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
c. Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall
pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the
context in which the data were gathered. d. Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered. 4
Each lesson is presented with an explanatory slide, then has a slide that asks students to solve a problem. All slides have interesting images; some are interactive!
This PowerPoint program is unlocked so you can add students' names or change the background to your school colors!
Note: Make sure you play the PowerPoint, rather than simply look at the single slides. You'll see that some pictures and paragraphs disappear on a single slide before the next picture or paragraph appear on the same slide.
