Day 7: Describing Distributions

Song of the Day: Skyfall sung by Adele

Just a great song from a great movie. Soothing, and when played softly, students worked quietly on their warm-ups. Win-Win-Win.

AP Stats: A fellow blogger does a graph of the day/week, I can’t remember who and how often, but it’s a great idea. So today’s warm-up was to plot your height in inches on a whiteboard poster sheet. The boys used blue ink and the girls used red ink. See the pictures below:

Not quite the two peaks I was looking for, but we were still able to practice describing shape, center, and spread and wonder about the color groupings.

A good day, the kids got to “stand tall” and plot their heights. I know, a bet of a stretch use of the lyrics today.
