Reflection: Co-Teaching Water Woes (5 Day Project-Based Lesson) - Section 4: Day 2: Elaborate


This activity provides many opportunities to make connections to CCSS in math, including:

Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.5.aReporting the number of observations.
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.
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.

If possible, work with your math teacher to co-teach this activity so that multiple standards can be addressed and mastered, using an integrated approach.
