Day 14: Manic Monday

Song of the Day: Manic Monday sung by the Bangles

Obvious choice for a Monday. Great, restful weekend but mania begins first hour. 

Stats & Data: We are working on split stem plots and calculating the five number summary. As you may guess we will be moving to box plots tomorrow. I think we will try to use Statkey by the Lock Family Statisticians to construct the plots. So great that it works on our iPads!

AP Statistics: Moving to the normal distribution this week. Today we did a little work with density curves. My students had to recall their basic geometry formulas to verify the area under the curve is equal to one. Hey guys, the area of a triangle is half the base times the height!!



Glad to be back working with the kids today, so I don’t “wish it were Sunday”.
