PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This teacher guide will assist the teacher and your students with the basics of plots and graphs related to data analysis. Measures of center will also be discussed. Everywhere one looks we see numbers and data. From our height and weight measurements at the doctor’s office to weighing bananas at the produce department scale, we are constantly bombarded with numbers. Trying to find a meaning from this information can become a monumental task. A branch of mathematics called “statistics” tries to make sense of these numbers for the ordinary individual.
In this manual, “The Basics of Data Analysis”, I will develop a better understanding of what data means through various plots and terms. The student will create a frequency table and plots such as a histogram, box and whisker plot, and stem and leaf. Terms such as range, mean, and median will be discussed and demonstrated
The teacher should download this FREE manual located at www.teacherspayteachers.com/store/MrNick1 and present this lesson to their students as an introduction to the Data Analysis series.
Common core standards included in the activities of this booklet are 6SP.B.5b, 6SP.B.5c, 6SP.B.5d, 7SP.A.1, and 7SP.A.2.
