This is our first module in the Describing Data Unit. In our first f2f class meeting for this module, you will be assigned to a group to work on the group tasks. This module will be 1 1/2 weeks long ending with our last f2f meeting and a quiz on Interpretation and comparison of data sets. Assignments will be submitted via our learning management system.


KEY STANDARDS
Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data
Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.
MCC9-12.S.ID.1 Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots). Choose appropriate graphs to be consistent with numerical data: dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
MCC9-12.S.ID.2 Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation-Advanced Algebra) of two or more different data sets. Include review of Mean Absolute Deviation as a measure of variation.
MCC9-12.S.ID.3 Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers). Students will examine graphical representations to determine if data are symmetric, skewed left, or skewed right and how the shape of the data affects descriptive statistics.

Module Objectives

You will construct appropriate graphical displays (dot plots, histogram, and box plot) to describe sets of data values with a minimum of 80% accuracy on an independent quiz.

You will select the appropriate measures to describe and compare the center and spread of two or more data sets in context with a minimum of 80% accuracy on an independent quiz.

You will use the context of the data to explain why its distribution takes on a particular ship with a minimum of 80% accuracy on an independent quiz.

You will explain the effect of any outliers on the shape, center, and spread of the data sets with a minimum of 80% accuracy on an independent quiz.



Learning Activities and Links

1. After our first f2f meeting complete Math Class HW assignment and submit via the Learning Management System. We will discuss this in our second f2f meeting.
2. Work with your assigned group to complete the The Basketball Star task (remember each student will submit their own assignment). The collaboration will take place within your team assignment under projects. You and your group will have time during our second f2f meeting in order to work on this task (do not plan on getting the complete task done during that time frame).
3. Watch the following LearnZillion lessons:
4. Work with your assigned group to complete the BMI Calculations task
(remember each student will submit their own assignment). There will be no f2f time to work on this task, all collaboration work will be done on your team page in projects.
5. After our 3rd f2f meeting, if you are still having issues as pointed out in the Formative Assessment Lesson: Representing Data 2, you can review the following lessons specific to comments on your FAL.
6. Module quiz will be during our 4th f2f, prior to starting the introduction to Module 2. Be prepared to start the quiz first thing in class.
