This Olympic Games project incorporates the use of line plots, stem and leaf plots, analyzing upward and downward trends in data and median, mode, range and outliers. I also incorporated discussion and higher order thinking skills. Students will apply these concepts and skills to Olympic statistics that they will research - included are suggestions for websites to research and topics to research.
-Slides to introduce and discuss line plots, stem and leaf plots, analyzing upward and downward trends in data and median, mode, range and outliers
-Student sheets to record data and make 3 different graphs
-An enrichment/ extension activity
This would be best for 4th, 5th or 6th grade math students.
This project could be used with any of the Olympic games, (Summer, Winter or Youth), not just the winter games.

Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
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.
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.
