Lesson: Standard Deviation
Objective: SWBAT……
Understand that standard deviation is a measure of the spread of the data
Use their prior knowledge of mean, variance…etc to calculate the standard deviation
Use Microsoft Excel to derive formulas and create charts that show the spread of data collected
Essential Question: What information determines standard deviation and how can we illustrate
such data?
Materials: Math work sheets, Microsoft excel

What is the teacher doing?
(questions to support students work )
Anticipated responses from students, and
what teacher should do as a result
Do Now: Complete sheet #1
 Using the set of data used on the worksheet
solve for the variance
 Then solve for Standard Deviation

Log Attendance;
encourage students to be
persistent deriving
Have calculators available so
that students are able to check
their work.
Discuss what
information is
needed to derive the
Challenge students
to agree or disagree,
 Using excel enter the data given in the
math worksheet
 Create a formula for standard deviation
 Graph the bell curve to display the
spread of the data.
