Connects to the new common core standards:
6.SP.1 Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.
6.SP.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.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.
6.SP.4 Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
6.SP.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context.
