Statistics Unit

We are approaching the end of first semester and we are finishing our first ever Common Core Statistics unit.  We covered dot plots, histograms, measures of central tendency, box and whisker plots and standard deviation.  We found that the students were familiar with most of this information except for standard deviation.  Next year, I will go through some of the basic concepts quicker and I will spend more time on analyzing data.   I'm thinking more analysis of outliers and more study of different types of distributions (normal and otherwise).  Here's links to some activities that I found helpful

Box and Whisker Lesson
