About the Course
The Common Core State Standards in math are designed to make sure that students meet consistent educational goals regarding essential math concepts. This collection is tailored to assist students in attaining Common Core standards in statistics and probability. With brief video lessons, the resources in this collection can ensure that students are proficient in these standards. Lesson topics include:
 Statistical and nonstatistical questions
 Data set center
 Calculating median, mean, mode and range
 Shape, symmetry and skewdness in visual representations of data sets
 Bimodal and unimodal distributions
 Spread in data sets
 Formulating quartiles and the interquartile range
 Histograms, dot plots and box plots
 Formula for population and sample variance
 Defining the nature of a measured attribute
 Using univariate data to make arguments and predictions
Each topic in this collection is broken down into small chunks of information and brought to life in our engaging video lessons. Each lesson helps students grasp required information for the Common Core standards in ten minutes or less. Use the lesson quizzes and teaching tips included with each chapter to supplement classroom activities and homework assignments.
Collection Details
Statistical and NonStatistical Questions (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.1)
Standard: Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. For example, 'How old am I?' is not a statistical question, but 'How old are the students in my school?' is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students' ages.
The lessons for this standard teach students to identify and tell the difference between statistical and nonstatistical questions.
Center, Shape & Spread (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.2)
Standard: 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.
In these lessons, students learn about the center, shape and spread of data sets.
Measures of Centers and Variations (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.3)
Standard: 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.
These lessons help students to understand the concepts of center measure and variance.
Number Line Plots (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.4)
Standard: Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
Students can learn how to create and interpret histograms, dot plots and box plots.
(CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5)
Standard: Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context.
Use these lessons to demonstrate how to describe distributions and define the nature of an attribute. Students also learn how to summarize data that is organized in histograms, dot plots and box plots.
(CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5.A)
Standard: Report the number of observations in a numerical data set.
Students can use these lessons to learn how to interpret information found in data sets to report the number of observations.
(CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5.B)
Standard: Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation in a data set, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
The lesson on this standard help students to understand key aspects of a measured attribute, including how it was measured, sampling size and whether the data is quantitative or categorical.
Measures of Center and Variability (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5.C)
Standard: Give quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.
These lessons teach students about measures of center and how to calculate them, as well as distributions, variance, and the interquartile range.
(CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5.D)
Standard: Relate the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered.
Lessons on this standard teach students about measures of central tendency and variability and visual representations of data sets.
