Big Ideas: Data can be represented using tables, charts, and graphs, and the type of display is determined by the type of data. There are numerical measures that describe the center and spread of data. This lesson builds on students’ work in 6th grade with measures of center and spread. In this lesson, students will find the mean and median of a data set and determine which of these measures is the appropriate measure for the distribution. Students will also describe a data set by measures of spread including the interquartile range and standard deviation. Vocabulary: univariate, measures of center, mean, median, measures of spread, interquartile range, standard deviation, skewness, symmetric Special Materials: Copies of Broncos image and Seahawks image - Students will choose one as they enter the classroom.
