Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Modeling with Box Plots and Histograms - Section 2: Independent Practice


During this lesson students practiced analyzing Real World Data and organizing the data into a box plot, histogram, and cumulative frequency histogram.  Students will then write a conclusion of the data citing the models that they have created (MP3).  I found a great resource for thinking about how to teach students to write statistical conclusions.

I have attached a word document that I downloaded from the STEW website:
