This is a series of a few lessons that cover STANDARD DEVIATION using the Develop-Solidify-Practice Learning Cycle.
This download includes:
- A developing task to introduce students to the concept of standard deviation.
- Two days of solidifying notes on calculating standard deviation by hand and calculating standard deviation with technology when the data set becomes too large.
- A task cards practice activity on using standard deviation.
- Three worksheets that can be used as homework or assessment.
This learning cycle is included in the unit Statistics and Interpreting Data
available in my store.
This lesson set is designed for a Secondary Math I math curriculum, but could easily be adapted to include z-scores and Empirical Rule for Secondary Math III.
