Big Ideas: Technology can be used to quickly calculate key statistical information of large data sets. Key statistical information from a data set can be used to analyze the data. Prior to this lesson, students have calculated statistical information and analyzed data manually, which limits the size of the data set students are able to analyze. In this lesson, students will use technology to calculate key statistical information and to analyze large data sets. Special Materials: Spreadsheet application (preferred) Graphing calculator
