- 6.SP.A.1Recognize 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?"Â is not a statistical question, but "How old are the students in my school?"Â is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students' ages.
- 6.SP.A.2Understand 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.
- 6.SP.A.3Recognize 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.

Analyze this! Mean Median Mode and Range

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Finding measures of central tendency will be applied to the different graphs throughout this unit

What's in your name?

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:The students will be collecting data from other students to represent in a bar graph.

Analyze This Part 2!

6th Grade Math

Â» 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.

Median, Mode, Range, and the Outlaw called the Outlier

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Median, Mode, Range, & Outlier... So... What Are They?

Calculating Mean: A measure of central tendency

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Mean: The Center of Data Universe

Statistics Jeopardy

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What do students understand? What gaps do they have in their understanding? Students play the Statistics Jeopardy review game.

Appropriate Measure of Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

Â» 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.

Playing with Measures of Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

Â» 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.

Change and Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:We can make predictions as to the effect additional values will have on the measures of central tendency by having an understanding of numbers and their influence on the measures of central tendency.

Mean

6th Grade Math

Â» 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

Â» 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

Â» 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
