Tables to Compare Data Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. The Tables to Compare Data learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 8.SP.A.4 as written in the common core national math standards.

Two-way tables organize data based on two categorical variables. Construct two-way tables summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Analyze frequencies shown in two-way tables of categorical data to look for the association. Describe the association of categorical variables in the content of the problem.
Add or subtract percentage values from two-way tables to see if corresponding associations are consistent. Compute marginal sums or marginal percentages.
