Common Core Mathematical Content Standards:

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.5.c Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by: giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (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.


HS.S-ID.2 Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more data sets.

HS.S-ID.3 Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers).
