Activity Idea: Have students collect data from their classmates and graph it appropriately by using a either pie chart, bar graph or line graph.
Tip: Students can draw their graph using the drawing tool, or import from another app. Using the voice recorder tool, students should explain why they chose this particular graph to showcase their data.
Supports Common Core: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.1: 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.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.4, :Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.SP.A.1: Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.
