Section 2: Displaying Data
 Calculating...
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to quartiles and box plots.

Lesson: Introduces students to stem-and-leaf plots and calculating the mean, median, and mode from the plots.

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: Students can create box plots for either built-in or user-specified data as well as experiment with outliers. User may choose to use or not use the median for calculation of interquartile range.

Activity: View histograms for built-in or user-specified data. Experiment with how the size of the class intervals influences the appearance of the histogram. Parameters: Data sets, class sizes.

Activity: Enter data and view the mean, median, variance, and standard deviation of the data set. Parameters: Number of observations, range for observations, which statistics to view, identifiers for the data.

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: Graph ordered pairs and customize the graph title and axis labels. Points are connected from left to right, rather than being connected in the order they are entered.

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.
