Graphin’! (again…)

This time the graphin’ fun was in AP Statistics. Students learned about different graphical displays that statisticians use to show the distribution of data sets. Students did two separate one day activities. The first required them to use our study card layout to describe an assigned graph. The second required students to choose real data sets from recent copies of the World Almanac and the Statistical Abstract of the United States and show the data in an appropriate display, as well as calculate measures of center and spread for the data set. These projects turned out to be fun and interesting, and I know that the students enjoyed them and learned a lot. Stay tuned for more updates!
