This resource is intended for students to work with a partner to determine equivalent fractions to find the sum. Students need to have a background knowledge of connecting fractions and decimals, along with equivalent fractions prior to this activity. It may be helpful to have each row be printed on different colored paper, so it may help organize their thinking.

Distributions and Variability

Type of Unit: Project

Prior Knowledge

Students should be able to:

Represent and interpret data using a line plot.
Understand other visual representations of data.

Lesson Flow

Students begin the unit by discussing what constitutes a statistical question. In order to answer statistical questions, data must be gathered in a consistent and accurate manner and then analyzed using appropriate tools.

Students learn different tools for analyzing data, including:

Measures of center: mean (average), median, mode
Measures of spread: mean absolute deviation, lower and upper extremes, lower and upper quartile, interquartile range
Visual representations: line plot, box plot, histogram

These tools are compared and contrasted to better understand the benefits and limitations of each. Analyzing different data sets using these tools will develop an understanding for which ones are the most appropriate to interpret the given data.

To demonstrate their understanding of the concepts, students will work on a project for the duration of the unit. The project will involve identifying an appropriate statistical question, collecting data, analyzing data, and presenting the results. It will serve as the final assessment.

In this lesson, students are given criteria about measures of center, and they must create line plots for data that meet the criteria. Students also explore the effect on the median and the mean when values are added to a data set.Students use a tool that shows a line plot where measures of center are shown. Students manipulate the graph and observe how the measures are affected. Students explore how well each measure describes the data and discover that the mean is affected more by extreme values than the mode or median. The mathematical definitions for measures of center and spread are formalized.Key ConceptsStudents use the Line Plot with Stats interactive to develop a greater understanding of the measures of center. Here are a few of the things students may discover:The mean and the median do not have to be data points.The mean is affected by extreme values, while the median is not.Adding values above the mean increases the mean. Adding values below the mean decreases the mean.You can add values above and below the mean without changing the mean, as long as those points are “balanced.”Adding values above the median may or may not increase the median. Adding values below the median may or may not decrease the median.Adding equal numbers of points above and below the median does not change the median.The measures of center can be related in any number of ways. For example, the mean can be greater than the median, the median can be greater than the mean, and the mode can be greater than or less than either of these measures.Note: In other courses, students will learn that a set of data may have more than one mode. That will not be the case in this lesson.Goals and Learning ObjectivesExplore how changing the data in a line plot affects the measures of center (mean, median).Understand that the mean is affected by outliers more than the median is.Create line plots that fit criteria for given measures of center.

Lesson plan where students are asked to consider how to draw a perfect circle, and learn to do so using a line segment called a radius. They also learn to fold a circle in two directions symmetrically to find its center. This activity is motivated by a CYBERCHASE episode in which the CyberSquad set out to rescue a magic ring from Hacker and deposit it in a safe place.

In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad is trapped in one of the Spheres of Fears, and they are trying to get through a gate to escape. The key to the gate is locked inside a can, and in order to access the key they must attach the correct label to the can. After guessing incorrectly on the first try, the CyberSquad decides to take some measurements to find the correct label. Using two circles nearby, they compare the diameter of each circle to its circumference. They realize there is a special relationship between the circumference of a circle and the length of its diameter. Teaching tips are also provided that discuss frame, focus and follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.
