 LESSONS: * calculator link
*
Categorizing Data (quantitative, qualitative, univariate, bivariate)
Representing Data Graphically (a comparison of histogram, dot plot, box plot w/same data)
Shapes of Distributions (peaks, shapes of histograms, dot plots, boxplots)
Measures of Center ( mean, median, balance point, when to use what)
*
*
Variance and Standard Deviation (formulas, normal curve)
*
Measures of Spread (range, IQR, MAD, variance, standard deviation, which is best)

 PRACTICE: • Practice Categorizing Data (qualitative, quantitative, univariate, bivariate, biased, unbiased) • Practice with Box Plots • Practice with Outliers • Practice with Measures of Center & Shapes of Distributions • Practice with Standard Deviation • Practice Interpreting Graphs (interpret and compare histograms, dot plots, box plots) • Game (under development)

 REFRESHERS: (while these topics are mostly "review", you may also find new information here) • Four Step Statistical Process (process, avoiding bias) * • Measures of Central Tendency (mean, mode, median) • Dot Plots * • Histograms (frequency, cumulative frequency, & relative frequency histograms) * • Box Plots (box & whisker plots, quartiles, IQR, five statistical summary, outliers, skewed box plots) * • Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD)
