Illuminations: State Data
Illuminations (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics)

Students create graphs based on the characteristics of the names of the 50 States, and find mean, median, mode, and range of the data.

An average is a single number that represents the “middle value” of all the numbers in a list or set.

Crash Course: Statistics #4 - Measures of Central Tendency
Crash Course

Today we’re going to talk about measures of central tendency – those are the numbers that tend to hang out in the middle of our data: the mean, the median, and mode.

Crash Course: Statistics #17 - Randomness
Crash Course

Today, we’re going to talk about how we can extract information from seemingly random events starting with the expected value or mean of a distribution and walking through the first four “moments” – the mean, variance, skewness, and kurtosis. 

Mathalicious: Overrated
Mathalicious

In this lesson, students use mean, median, and mode to analyze the trustworthiness of 5-star ratings system and suggest ways to make them more reliable.

Mathalicious: Wealth of Nations
Mathalicious

Students use mean, median, histograms, and box-and-whisker plots to compare how wealth is distributed in different countries and debate the pros and cons of their ideal distribution.

Mathalicious: Police, Academy
Mathalicious

In this lesson, students draw histograms to explore state spending habits on schools and on police.

Mathalicious: Good Cop, Bad Cop
Mathalicious

In this lesson, students compare the distributions of excessive force of two police departments and explore how the shape of the distribution affects the effectiveness of different solution attempts.

This project-based unit on statistics furnishes a vehicle for problem solving through real-world data collection and analysis.

Illuminations: Let's Compare
Illuminations (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics)

Students collect numerical data, generate graphs, and compare two data sets.

Illuminations: Alphabet Soup
Illuminations (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics)

In this lesson, students construct box-and-whisker plots.
