Description

An 11 day CCSS-Aligned Statistics Unit - including statistical questions, describing data, and analyzing data with dot plots, box plots, and histograms. Students will understand measures of center and variability and how they relate to displays of data.

Students will practice with both skill-based problems, real-world application questions, and error analysis to support higher level thinking skills. You can reach your students and teach the standards without all of the prep and stress of creating materials!

Standards: 6.SP.1, 6.SP.2, 6.SP.3, 6.SP.4, 6.SP.5; Texas Teacher? Check out our TEKS-Aligned Statistics unit here. Please don’t purchase both as there is overlapping content.

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.
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 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.
Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
