Lesson objective: Apply knowledge of data displays to create the best data display for the needs of the situation.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of data displays to a mathematical situation. Students are asked to create a data display that best answers the students' questions about the data set.

Key Concept students will use:

- Reporting results of data analysis includes not only calculations, but also a display of the data in a way that is informative and not misleading.

Skills students will use:

- Create histograms, dot plots, and box plots

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (model with mathematics) as they create data displays to represent the data and then use the displays to best answer the questions provided.

**Key vocabulary: **

- box plot
- center
- distribution
- dot plot
- histogram
- spread
