Reflection: Intervention and Extension Compare Two Data Sets Using Box and Whisker Plots - Section 4: Exit Ticket

If there is time left to complete this Unit, I provide students with an additional assignment.

The homework assignment:

1. Get contact information from your partner(s).
2. Decide on a driving question that you want answered when comparing two sets of data.
3. Choose and find two data sets to compare and analyze.

I think that it is beneficial for students to create their own statistical question, and use the tools that we have learned in this Unit to analyze two sets of data.  When students start seeing the connection between Center, Spread, and Shape, they get a deeper conceptual understanding of Statistics.
