2 Ohio Standards Connection: Related Benchmark A Create, interpret and use graphical displays and statistical measures to describe data; e.g. box-andwhisker plots, histograms, scatterplots, measures of center and variability. Indicator 1 Use, create, and interpret scatterplots and other types of graphs as appropriate. Mathematical Processes Benchmarks A. Formulate a problem or mathematical model in response to a specific need or situation, determine information required to solve the problem, choose method for obtaining this information, and set limits for acceptable solution. D. Apply reasoning processes and skills to construct logical verifications or counter-examples to test conjectures and to justify and defend algorithms and solutions. E. Use a variety of mathematical representations flexibly and appropriately to organize, record and communicate mathematical ideas. Facilitate a discussion of the various terms and statistical measures identified by students. Use a round- robin strategy by asking each pair of students for one term or measure from their list. Write responses on chart paper, the board or a transparency. Lead students in a discussion of the terms and measures on the list. Ask students to define the terms, tell how to find them and what they indicate about the data. Extend the discussion, as needed, to include a review of key prerequisite terms and measures for the lesson; e.g., mean, median, mode and range. Some terms that may or may not be identified initially include outlier, quartile and interquartile range, terms generally used to describe larger data sets than in the pre-assessment activity. Scoring Guidelines: Use the activity to identify students needs and, if needed, to determine the level of review or additional instruction required. Students responses are not scored. Post-Assessment: Students complete three tasks designed to assess knowledge and skills in comparing two sets of data using measures of center and spread, Attachment B, Post-Assessment Activity. Scoring Guidelines: Use Attachment C, Post-Assessment Answer Key to guide scoring. Instructional Procedures: Part One Instructional Tip: Complete this component the day before the lesson to more efficiently implement the lesson activities. 2

8 quartile range Comparing Sets of Data Grade Eight Technology Connections: Use calculators or graphing calculators to find the measures of center, spread, and box-andwhisker plots. Use presentation software to create data displays. Use data analysis or statistics program to compute measures of center and spread and to create box-and-whisker plots. Use computer-based survey tools to design survey, collect data on-line, and summarize survey responses. Research Connections: Zorfass, Judith, & Harriet Copel.
