6.SP.2 Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be
described by its center, spread, and overall shape.
6.SP.4 Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
6.SP.5c Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or
mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall
pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.
6.SP.1 Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and
accounts for it in the answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the
students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
6.SP.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number,
while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
6.SP.5a Reporting the number of observations.
6.SP.5b Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of
6.SP.5d Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in
which the data were gathered.

Determine Big Ideas (lifelong understandings)
1. By developing an understanding of statistical
variability and data I can set goals to meet classroom
expectations compared to others.
2. Knowing how to summarize and describe
distributions can help me provide information to my
teachers about what the interests of students from my
Write Essential Questions (Answer Big Idea, hook student
1. How can I use data to determine how well I am doing in
class compared to others?
2. How can creating a graph from data about student’s
favorite hobbies help me to determine what clubs our school
should offer?
Formative Assessment Lessons
The teacher leaders for the Gates grant work recommend that Warren County Administration adopt the
practice that Warren County 6th grade Math teachers do a minimum of one Formative Assessment Lesson
per quarter. Choices for Formative Assessment Lessons may be found.
