Today we collected samples of different sizes using the random paper clip method from last week. Results are below. Students noticed that as the sample size gets bigger, the variability decreases and the data is more representative of the population.

We collected another sample of summer book reading, this time with a more random method of tossing paper clips. We noticed that the dot plots were more clustered around the actual population mean. When you select a sample randomly, the data is more representative of the population.

Groups completed their mystery line plots, and then we discussed which questions went with each set of data. We saw how each type of data tells a story, and you have to look closely at the characteristics to help explain things about the sample. We also talked about what techniques we used to calculate with such large groups of numbers.

Wednesday, Aug 30, 2017
Students worked in groups to analyze the data from our questionnaire yesterday. They are creating line plots and finding the measures of center for each set of data. We'll use these attributes to determine what information goes with each question.

7th Grade Math Questionnaire

After taking a preassessment on data analysis for the unit, students reviewed the measures of center, writing the definitions in their notebooks and worked on a few practice problems with their table groups.
