Looking for a statistics project that is fun, exciting, and related to the real world. Use the Basketball MVP Project. Students must choose the MVP of a basketball team. They must use their knowledge of measures of center, measures of spread, and data displays to make their decision.
Assess Common Core:
~CCSS.Math.Content.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.
~CCSS.Math.Content.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.
~CCSS.Math.Content.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 numbers.
~CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.4 Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
~CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context
