Structure Of Statistical Data Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to understand a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape. The Structure Of Statistical 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 6.SP.A.2 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

Statistical questions anticipate and generate data that varies. Data is the information gathered from statistical questions. Variability can be large or small depending on the question and the anticipated data being gathered. Display data generated from statistical questions with dot plots, line plots, or histograms.

Describe data in a box-plot, dot plot, or histogram in terms of symmetry and what the shape means as per the data. Describe the data in terms of the shape of peaks, gaps, clusters, and outliers. See the center of the data as the middle of the data set. Describe the spread of the data. Describe data in a box plot in terms of spread of the data.
