DAY 8 (09/11/14)

I’m loving the cooler weather here in Michigan. Less worries about dress code violations.

Stats & Data: We are learning how to construct box plots today. I’m surprised very few of my students recognized a box plot during the introduction. After practicing constructing a couple of box plots most students commented they didn’t like them and thought other plots were better. I think when we finish the 30 second activity and compare distributions using box plots they may see their value. Calculating potential outliers on the docket for tomorrow.

AP Stats: Box plots and outliers today for this group. We also explored a couple of geogebratube activities that address the relationship between mean/median and the shape of a distribution. The links are here and here. A big FRQ blitz tomorrow.
