6th grade CA Common Core Standard 6.SP.1 broken down and discussed leading to a link of an original source. Statistics is not an easy topic for many to teach and is often pushed to the side in order to get other math concepts covered. With the move away from teaching to a test and jobs in the statistics field growing (already numerous), I feel it's an important topic. I'm learning as I go, too, and want to share what I've gathered so other teachers have access, too. I picked up some of this knowledge at the MWM JSM conference in Seattle 2015.
