__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.

__Game Plan__

__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.

**Homework: none**

__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**

**Box and Whisker Plots Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7qWblT5NZI** and **https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhFNDONky0w **

__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.**
