This projects helps students to integrate writing with one variable statistics. The project has students create a double histogram,a double stem-and-leaf plot, and a double box-and-whisker plot to compare/contrast two sets of data. Additionally, students will work with mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, and standard deviation. Great way to pull together multiple concepts toward the end of your until on one variable statistics. Successful when used in partners or small groups.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.A.1 Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).
CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.A.2 Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets.
