Unit F: Statistics
Listed below are the NYS Grade 6 Common Core Performance Standards for Unit F: Statistics.
With each Performance Standard are "I Can Statements" students work on throughout the course of the Unit. At the end of the Unit, the students will be assessed on their ability to perform the actions in each "I Can Statement."
Finally, under the "I Can Statements" are a list of Topics. You will find extra practice resources, videos, class notes, and homework answers by clicking on the appropriate link.
Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.
Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape."I Can Identify and Write a Statistical Question in which Data needs to be Collected."Statistical Question
Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
"I Can Calculate the Mean, Median, Mode, and Range of a given Data Set and Determine which Measure of Center best Summarizes the Data Set."
"I Can Describe the Variability or Spread of a Data Set."
"I Can Calculate the Mean Absolute Deviation for a given Data Set and use the result to describe the Variability of the Data."Calculating Mean, Median, Mode and RangeVariabilityCalculating Mean Absolute Deviation
