How many stars did each of your students accumulate in BuzzMath this year? If you were to gather data on this statistical question would your data be clustered? Could you predict if there would be an outlier? Statistical Question and Data Distribution begins by introducing students to identifying statistical questions and then requires them to analyze data gathered from statistical questioning.
As students analyze the shape of the data on a graph they will be able to make generalizations. As the activity progresses students will also analyze numerical sets of data by finding measures of central tendency. This is a great activity to assign as a follow up to creating a classroom graph using data collected from statistical questions asked to and by your students.
