Reflection: Intervention and Extension Dot Plots, Box Plots, and Histograms! (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Exit Slip


For most of my class activities, I believe in homogeneous grouping.  However, during the Statistics Unit, I have began to change my mind.  First of all, you need to have someone in the group who is comfortable with their artistic ability to draw the graphs.  Then you also need a group member that can verbalize and write about the distribution that they are describing.  

Therefore, in this unit, I think students would have more success if higher and lower students are paired together.  Peers modeling these skills, as well as the modeling by the teacher, I believe will improve student achievement.
