    Data Worksheet

  • Standards:

    MAFS.6.SP.2.5 - Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context. 


    MAFS.6.SP.2.4 - Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. 


    MAFS.6.SP.1.1 - Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. 


    MAFS.6.SP.1.2 - 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. 


    MAFS.6.SP.1.3 - Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary a single number. 

  • MAFS.6.SP.1.1

    Objective: I can recognize if a question will yield statistical data.

  • MAFS.6.SP.1.2

    Objective: I can recognize the center, spread and overall shape of the distribution of data.
