Data Probability

:

Interpreting Data

Summarize and describe statistical distribution using quantitative measures of center (median and mean) and variability (range).

###### 1:

Understand that median is the middle number in a list of numbers (that are listed in order from least to greatest).

###### 2:

Find the mode of a given data set.

###### 3:

Understand that the mode is the number(s) that occur most often.

###### 4:

Find the range of a given data set.

###### 5:

Understand that range is the difference between the lowest and highest values of a data set.

6th

###### Vocabulary:

Data, Classify, Table, Median, Mode, Range

Activities:

-Discussed vocabulary words in terms of every-day use, not specific to math, as a segue into how the words as they know it relate to math.

-Sorted bag of M&Ms by color and created a data table to represent their findings.

-Consolidated all their information in a class table, which was used to find median, mode and range.

-Carefully calculated the sum of M&Ms by package totals and then by color totals to cross check their work.

-Organized the data points from least to greatest to determine the median, mode, and range.    ### Home Exploration

###### Challenge Problem:

Take a number die and roll it 9-10 times, recording the numer rolled as you go. Sort the data from least to greatest. Find the Median, Mode, and Range of the given data set.

###### Guiding Questions:

Review and discuss Median, Mode, and Range.

Talking points in class: Median sounds like "medium" which is the middle size. Mode occurs the most *both "mode" and "most" start with "mo." Range, as with walkie talkies or at a driving range, refers to distance; range is the distance between the least and greatest value (as they'd appear on a number line versus how many data points are between them). ## Absent Students:
