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


Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
a. reporting the number of observations.
b. describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it
was measured and its units of measurement.
c. giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and
variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as
describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the
overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were
d. relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of
the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• organize and display data as a line plot or dot plot,
histogram, and/or box plot.
• Given a box plot, students summarize the data by the 5-
number summary (Min, Q1, Median, Q3, Max.)
• describe a set of data using the 5-number summary and the
interquartile range.
• construct a box plot from a 5-number summary.
• identify the similarities and differences of representing the
same data in a line plot, a histogram, or a box plot.
• decide and explain which type of plot (dot plot, line plot,
histogram, or box plot) is the best way to display my data
depending on what I want to communicate about the data.

• understand that the mean is a balance point by calculating the
distances of the data points from the mean and call the
distances, deviations.
• understand that the mean is the value such that the sum of the
deviations is equal to zero.
• write a data collection summary (5 number summary) that includes
the number of observations, what is being investigated, how it is
measured, and the units of measurement.
• justify the use of a particular measure of center or measure of
variability based on the shape of the data.
• use a measure of center and a measure of variation to draw
inferences about the shape of the data distribution.
• describe overall patterns and any deviations in the data and how
they relate to the context of the problem.

Classroom Activities

This week we will be completing classroom activities to further teach and implement the above standards. Students will participate in classroom discussions and complete assignments using both IXL and MathSpace to practice and master these skills.

Assignments Due

Due Monday 11-13-17 “MMR Homework” (MathSpace)

Tuesday 11-14-17 Mean, Median, Mode, and Range TEST 

Additional Resources

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