Central Tendency

The SMART board lesson is a complete unit on Mean, Median, and Mode that includes definitions, activities, and assessments.

Probability with Kisses

Involve the class in a probability event  using experimental data values rather than theoretical values to determine the outcome of an event.

Box and Whisker Plot

Use this interactive lesson to study the different components of a Box and Whisker Plot.  Complete with a pretest, definitions, steps to construct, and graphs to analyze.

Stem & Leaf Plot

This is a neat little lesson on how to construct a stem and leaf plot.  The student is guided through the process and then data is available to practice constructing a stem and leaf plot

Tagging Fish

This interactive lesson shows the mathematics with ratio and proportion in a simplified version of how tagging fish allow us to make educated guesses about the fish population in a certain lake.

Tacky Situation

Involve the class in a probability event  using experimental data values rather than theoretical values to determine the outcome of an event.  Very similar to Probability with Kisses but uses thumbtacks so be careful.

Featured Lesson

Probability and Statistics

And the Winner is ...

Use this activity to obtain a winner as a coin is flip while students try to determine what comes up next

Rock Paper Scissors

Use this activity to obtain a winner as you play the game of rock paper scissors

Concepts in probability and statistics should encourage students to collect, organize, and display relevant data to answer questions and use appropriate statistical methods to analyze this data. They should be given opportunities to develop and evaluate inferences and predictions that are based on data, and they should understand and apply  basic concepts of probability.
