The first and third times are recorded and compiled, producing two data sets to be compared. Students analyze the data to conclude whether or not their ability to estimate 20 seconds improves with practice.Key ConceptsMeasures of center and spreadLine plots, box plots, and histogramsMean absolute deviation (MAD)Goals and Learning ObjectivesApply knowledge of statistics to compare sets of data.Use measures of center and spread to analyze data.Decide which graph is appropriate for a given situation.
