PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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

This packet includes two activities. The first activity encourages students to identify the best data display (box plot, histogram, dot plot) for the situation and the second activity is a mini 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. 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 box plot, histogram. dot plot
