Standards to be covered:
MGSE6.SP.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.
MGSE6.SP.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 with a single number.
MGSE6.SP.4: Display numerical data plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots
MGSE6.SP.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
- Reporting the number of observations.
- Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
- Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range).
d.Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data was gathered.
Monday: Students will review shapes of graphs and take a short exit ticket.
Homework: Finish page 766 if you have not already done so.
Tuesday: Students will learn to determine which measure of center is best for a given set of data by completing the Where’s the Middle? Task.
Wednesday (Early Release Day): Students will continue to learn about how outliers impact a set of data by finding mean and median from a dot plot.
Homework: Review notes for a quiz tomorrow.
Thursday: Students will complete a quiz on mean, median and mode.
Homework: Milestone Review due Monday

Friday: Students will learn what a box and whisker plot is, how to make it and the vocabulary associated with it.
Homework: Milestone Review due Monday and complete the two box plots in your MSG.
