# Wk5 Q4 Online Learning Apr 27-May 1 Algebra 1

Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra I Honors 7th/8th 5 UNIT 11: Statistics
Standard(s) Taught
 MAFS.912.S-ID.1.1: Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots). MAFS.912.S-ID.1.2: Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets.

MAFS.912.S-ID.1.3: Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers).

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
 • choose the best representation (dot plot, histogram, box plot) for a set of data. • decide if a representation preserves all the data values or presents only the general characteristics of a data set. • construct a histogram for a set of data. • construct a dot plot for a set of data and choose the appropriate scale to represent data on a number line. • construct a box plot based on the 5-number summary. • identify and interpret the similarities and differences in the shape, center, and spread of a data set and within real-world context if given.  • describe the center of the data distribution (mean or median). • choose the histogram with the largest mean when shown several histograms. • describe the spread of the data distribution (interquartile range or standard deviation). • choose the histogram with the greatest standard deviation when shown several histograms. • choose the box-and-whisker plot with the greatest interquartile range when shown several box-and-whisker plots. • understand and be able to identify which measure of center and spread are appropriate depending of the shape of the distribution. • recognize the mean moves towards a skew or extreme value.
