6.SP.1-6.SP.5 Statistics and Probability

Posted: March 20, 2017 in Advance, Periods 1&2, Periods 3&4
6.SP.A.1Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.

TenMarks Assignment:

  • 6.SP.1 Recognizing Statistical Questions

6.SP.A.2 Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.

TenMarks Assignment:

  • 6.SP.2 Describe Data Distribution: Use Center/Spread/Shape

6.SP.A.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.

  •  6.SP.3 Recognize Measures of Center & Measures of Variation

6.SP.B.4Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.

TenMarks Assignment:

  • 6.SP.4 Displaying Numerical Data

6.SP.B.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context Reporting the number of observations and describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement. Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.  Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered.

  • 6.SP.5d Measures of Center and Variability: Shape Data Display

7.SP.1-7.SP.4 Syllabus


7.SP.A.1Understand 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.

7.SP.A.2 Use data from a random sample to draw  inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions.

7.SP.B.3 Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar variabilities, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of variability.

7.SP.B.4 Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.
