Reflection: High Quality Task Compare Two Data Sets Using Box and Whisker Plots - Section 2: Compare Two Data Sets


To have High Quality tasks in Statistics, teachers need to have many examples and visuals.  Especially when comparing two data sets.  In the Google search, typing in the words comparing two data problem sets brings up many examples.  This is one of the videos that compares two histograms.  

There is also a Power Point of slides of the videos, if you want the students to compare the data sets first.  Then after students have responded and shared out, you can play the video for reinforcement or remediation.

All students and teachers need to become comfortable with providing reasoning about data.
