I use this with my 6th graders when we are done with our Statistics unit. You can use it as an assessment, group assignment, performance task, etc.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.
Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
