Q2, W9: December 17th – 19th

TeacherFelicia Taylor
Subject AreaIntensive Math
Grade Level6th
Week #18
Unit of InstructionFocus 4: Data Analysis
Standard(s) Taught


Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.


Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.


Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values using a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary using a single number.


Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be successful when they can:

  • understand that the data generated from statistical questions vary.
  • recognize that responses to statistical questions have variations that can be used to draw conclusions about the data set.
  • identify the difference between a statistical and non-statistical question.
  • formulate and write a simple statistical question and explain what data could be collected to answer the question.
  • understand that data collected to answer a statistical question can be analyzed by their distribution.
  • calculate mean, median, mode, and range.
  • describe a set of data using its center (mean, median, mode), spread (range) and overall shape.
  • create a line plot, histogram and box plot.
  • represent given data on the most appropriate graph (dot plot, histogram, or box plot).
  • Given a box plot, students summarize the data by the 5-number summary (minimum, Q1, median, Q3, maximum).
  • describe a set of data using the 5-number summary and the interquartile range.
  • construct a box plot from a 5-number summary.
