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.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its value with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how it’s values vary with a single number.
6.SP.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context.
7.SP.1 Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inference.
S-ID Summarize, represent and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.
S-IC Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments and observational studies.
