Big Ideas: Drawing comparative inferences may involve analyzing the data using mean, median, mean absolute deviation, interquartile range, range, and/or mode. In this lesson students will analyze data in different forms and draw informal comparative inferences about the populations involved. Some of the data may come in the form of box-and-whisker plots or in the form of averages. Students will have the opportunity to compare data sets and their inferences with other students. Vocabulary: Box-and-whisker
