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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Learning Targets:

  • distinguish between statistical questions and those that are not statistical.
  • formulate a statistical question and explain what data could be collected to answer the question
  • explain that there are three ways that the distribution of a set of data can be described: by its center, spread, or overall shape.
  • describe the center of a set of statistical data in terms of the mean, median, and the mode.
  • describe the spread of a set of statistical data in terms of extremes, clusters, gaps, and outliers.
  • describe the overall shape of the set of data in terms of its symmetry or skewness.
  • describe the distribution of the points on the dot plot in terms of center and variability.
  • define the center of a data distribution by a fair share value called the mean.
  • connect the fair share concept with a mathematical formula for finding the mean.
Classroom Activities

Students will take a Unit 1 (Number Systems) Test on Monday 9/25/17 as a final wrap up to Number Systems

This week we will continue learning about what makes a statistical question.

  • Population
  • Variable Answers

We will continue with our Mean, Median, Mode, and Range Lesson and practice throughout the week. 


Assignments Due

Students have a worksheet (see attachment for additional copy) to practice graphing on a coordinate plane. This worksheet is due on Wednesday 9/27/17

Period 2 students have been assigned “The Mean Homework” on Math Space, this is due on Thursday 9/28/17

All students will receive an assignment on MathSpace on Thursday and it will be due the following Thursday, 10/5/17 “MMMR Homework (Thursday Practice)”

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
