## Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Unit Assessment: One-Variable Statistics - Section 1: Unit Assessment: One Variable Statistics

Statistics presents numerous opportunities for students to self-direct and pursue mathematics that is interesting to them. Several websites like Statistic Brain (http://www.statisticbrain.com/) are clearinghouses for statistical data presented as lists of fun and interesting facts. Encourage students to explore some links that interest them and ask a statistical question. They can use the time after the unit test to research and identify something that is personally intriguing to them. Then you can either create an assignment or offer extra credit for a poster project that uses the skills learned in class to present, analyze, and answer their own statistical questions. Just make sure you require them have their questions pre-approved by you!
