At the end of this unit students will.....
- represent data using a dot plot, a histogram, or a box plot.
- identify similarities and differences in shape, center, and spread when given two or more data sets.
- use their understanding of normal distribution and the empirical rule to answer questions about data sets.
- interpret similarities and differences in shape, center, and spread when given two or more data sets within the real-world context given.
- predict the effect that an outlier will have on the shape, center, and spread of a data set.
- use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and estimate population percentages.
- recognize that there are data sets for which fitting a normal distribution is not appropriate.
- estimate areas under the normal curve.
