Tennessee Curriculum Standards
8th Grade
Data Analysis & Probability:
The student will understand and apply basic statistical and probability concepts in order to organize and analyze data and to make predictions and conjectures.
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Students discover algorithms as they sort shapes into Venn diagrams. Then students compare the efficiency of their algorithms using box plots.

Lesson: Students learn what bar graphs are used for, how to interpret the data presented, and how to organize their own data using bar graphs.

Lesson: Students learn about the difference between univariate and bivariate data and understand how to choose the best graph to display the data.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Enter data to create a bar graph, then change many settings for the graph's appearance.

Activity: Enter your own data categories and the value of each category to create a pie chart. There are also built in data sets which can be viewed.

Activity: Run a simulation to generate results from running the Monty Hall for multiple trials. This is similar to the game show "Let's Make A Deal", where you choose one of N doors in hopes of finding a grand prize behind one of the doors. Parameters: Number of doors, number of trials, staying, or switching between the two remaining doors.

Activity: Create a pie chart, adjusting the size of the divisions using your mouse or by entering values. Parameters: Number of sections, size of sections, whether to use percents or fractions.

Activity: PlopIt allows users to build dot plots of data using the mouse. View how the mean, median, and mode change as entries are added to the plot. Parameters: Range for observations.

Activity: View stem-and-leaf plots of your own data, and then practice finding means, medians and modes. Stem and Leaf Plotter is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
