Complete Lesson! This lesson features a 40 CARD SORT, Differentiated Cornell Notes, Distribution Shapes Graphic Organizer, and Power Point to go with the notes! Perfect for the inclusive classroom!

Within the Card Sort Activity there are 5 categories of cards to match:

1) Histogram

2) Frequency Display (including Dot Plots, Frequency Line Graphs and Tables)

3) Box Plots

4) Describing Shape

5) Describing Measures of Center & Spread.

With 8 different sets of matches, there are 40 cards total. Students work to sort and group the cards. Recording sheet and follow-up questions to the activity are provided!

Skills:Students will learn how to create histograms, box plots, dot plots. They will also learn how to describe data using shape, center, and spread.

Differentiation: The Cornell notes are tiered into 2 levels of difficulty, one where the notes are filled in, one where the notes are blank. Both sets have to write in the notes for examples. The 40 Card Sort Activity is differentiated by use of heterogeneous groups with assigned roles. Directions to differentiate the groups are in the lesson plan!

Common Core Standard:

CCSS.HSS.ID.A.1 Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).

CCSS.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).
