This is a great rotating table problems or stations activity. I used this with my inclusion population to introduce classification and review grade 6 statistics in math.
This includes 6 stations, a student answer document, and a teacher key.
Slides 1 and 2: Give living organisms that students must decide how to classify (wow! I thrilled with how creatively they classified!)
Slide 3: Find the mean, mode, median, range
Slide 4: Find the mean, find the absolute deviation
Slide 5: Determine if the questions are statistical or not; then create your own questions.
Slide 6: Make a box and whisker plot of the data
My students really enjoyed the variety that these problems provided and it was a great opportunity for team work!
Aligns with the following grade 6 common core standards:
Math 6.SP.B.4, 6.SP.B.5c
