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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Learning Targets: 


• define a measure of center as a single value that summarizes a data set.
• determine measures of center by calculating the mean, median, and mode of a set of numerical data.
• define a measure of variation as the range of the data, relative to the measures of center.
• determine measures of variation by calculating the interquartile range (IQR) of a set of numerical data.
• determine the measures of variation by calculating the mean absolute deviation (MAD) of a set of numerical data.

Classroom Activities

This week we will continue our Statistics Unit. Students will continue from last week practicing Mean, Median, Mode, and Range (MMMR). We will start our lesson on Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) covering both measures of Center and Measures of Variability.

Students will have both notebook pages and MathSpace activities to practice these concepts.

Please see attached for MAD practice worksheet we did as a class.  

Assignments Due

This week we have an assignment on MathSpace due on Thursday, October 5 entitled “MMMR Practice (Thursday Assignment)”

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
