Statistics: How the Shape of the Distribution Determines Choice of Statistics for Center and Spread

This product includes a lesson plan with worksheet and answer key aligned with the common core. Students learn how to identify and interpret the shape of a data distribution. Students also learn how the shape of the distribution and the presence of outliers affect the center and spread of the distribution, and how these attributes influence the choice of appropriate statistics for the center (central tendency) and spread of the distribution. The worksheet can be used as an in-class handout or as homework. Questions assess statistical reasoning as well as mechanics.

This product includes:

1) Lesson lecture slides in PDF (annotated with notes), PowerPoint, and Google Slides (link in PDF)

2) Lesson lecture handouts in PDF

3) Worksheet in PDF and editable in Google Slides (link in PDF)

4) Answer key with and without detailed rubric in PDF

5) A bonus 19-term vocabulary list relevant to Common Core Standards: Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable (HSS.ID.A.1, HSS.ID.A.2, and HSS.ID.A.3) in PDF

Objectives:

1) Learn different shapes of distributions of count and measurement variables and how to identify them

2) Learn how the shape of a distribution and presence of outliers impact the center and spread of a distribution

3) Learn how the shape of a distribution and presence of outliers inform the choice of statistics for center and spread.

Common Core Standards:

HSS.ID.A.3: Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers).
