Analyze This Part 2!

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:This lesson will be connecting mean, median, mode and range to real life. It will allow students to make sense of problems by using previously taught strategies.

The Shape Data Makes: Dot Plots

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What are the statistics on seeing spots? Displaying data on dot plots.

The Absolutes of Mean Absolute Deviation

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Mean Absolute Deviation: The Absolute Truth

Interquartile Range

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:We use the interquartile range to measure variability when the median is the best measure to describe the data set.

Choosing the Best Measure of Center

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Does the mean, median, or mode best represent this data set? Students calculate the measures of center and consider outliers and context in order to choose the best measure of center.

Mean Absolute Deviation

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:The MAD is a measure that described how much a typical data point in a data set differs from the mean of the data set.

Appropriate Measure of Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:Measures of Central Tendency describe the middle point of a distribution of a data set; however, some measures of central tendency better represent the data than others.

Selecting Measures of Center and Variability

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What are the pros and cons of each measure of center? What are the pros and cons of each measure of variability? Students choose measures of center and variability to represent a data set and justify their choices.

Playing with Measures of Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What will happen to the mode, median, and mean of data set when you add a new value? Students work to make predictions and understand how new data will affect measures of central tendency.

Shape, Center, and Spread

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:A graph is a visual representation that can be used to analyze and interpret data based on the center, spread and overall shape of the data.

Mean

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What does the mean mean? Students work with blocks to understand that the mean is a number that evens out a distribution.

Comparing Mean Absolute Deviation

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What does the mean absolute deviation tell us? Students use the data they collected in the previous lesson and Microsoft Excel to analyze data sets.

Mean Absolute Deviation

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What is mean absolute deviation? Students apply their knowledge of mean and absolute value to understand mean absolute deviation. Students collect data about estimating 30 seconds that they will use in the next lesson.

Unit Test

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 8 test.

6.SP.B.5a

Reporting the number of observations.

6.SP.B.5b

Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.

6.SP.B.5c

Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.

6.SP.B.5d

Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered.
