Product Description
Using Statistics in a Real World Scenario
Sports Injury and School Athletes

This packet includes two activities. The first activity guides students through 3 data analyses projects including identifying the best data display (box plot, histogram, dot plot) for the situation. The second activity is a performance task which asks students to critique the reasoning of others and refute a claim. In the process, students will learn that correlation does not imply causation. This can be independently done or as a whole class discussion. Either way, your students will be thinking critically and mathematically. The scenario is based on a real world experience. The data is realistic.

The activities can be used as guided practice or as "on your own" activities. They can also serve as an excellent “substitute” plan if the content has been previously taught.

Included:
Surveys
Activity 1- Create 3 data displays; box plot, histogram. dot plot
Activity 2 - Performance Task
