This activity guides students through the use of general data sets and central tendencies. As a class, two data sets are collected, one for both the height and ages of everyone in the classroom. The activity then discusses the concept of outliers.
Upon completion of the activity:
• Students will be able to find slope from graphs and determine which graphs have constant slope
• Students will be able to understand that rate of change is slope.
• Students will be able to generalize that
