# Algebra 1 Statistics Unit Materials

###### Posted on February 16, 2014 at 9:34 pm by Lisa

I have been meaning to blog these for a while.Below you will find the materials that I put together to use throughout my Statistics Unit. These are the learning targets that I used:

20 | I can describe the center of the data distribution (mean or median). | S-ID.2 |

21 | I can describe the spread of the data distribution (interquartile range or standard deviation). | S-ID.2 |

22 | I can represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots). | S-ID.1; N-Q.1; N-Q.2; N-Q.3 |

23 | I can compare the distribution of two or more data sets by examining their shapes, centers, and spreads when drawn on the same scale. | S-ID.2 |

24 | I can interpret the differences in the shape, center, and spread of a data set in the context of a problem, and can account for effects of extreme data points. | S-ID.3 |

25 | I can read and interpret the data displayed in a two-way frequency table. | S-ID.5 |

26 | I can interpret and explain the meaning of relative frequencies in the context of a problem. | S-ID.5 |

27 | I can construct a scatter plot, sketch a line of best fit, and write the equation of that line. | S-ID.6a; S-ID.6c |

28 | I can use the function of best fit to make predictions. | S-ID.6a |

29 | I can analyze the residual plot to determine whether the function is an appropriate fit. | S-ID.6b |

30 | I can calculate, using technology, and interpret a correlation coefficient. | S-ID.8 |

31 | I can recognize that correlation does not imply causation and that causation is not illustrated on a scatter plot. | S-ID.9 |

I will be honest with you all, dear readers. I pretty much had to create stuff from scratch. I have pulled some problems from various places on the interwebs, but I could not tell you where stuff came from. I don’t have many activities here. Just trying to find practice problems to meet what I felt the standards were looking for was a challenge. All of my note files are formatted for an Interactive Notebook. They are set up for 2 to a page, landscape (5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches).

Please feel free to use and adapt what I have published here. If you take something and make it better, I would greatly appreciate a link back to this blog post as well as a link to whatever you can created. I hope you find the materials helpful!

This is really good, Lisa, and it brings up a point I have been having frustration I knew had to be widely shared: namely, the fact that most of the most prominent stuff that is the most widely shared addresses the low-hanging fruit — the easiest lessons or activities to target.

As much as I appreciate the work that the Shell Centre tasks address, most of them do not address the newest and hardest-to-integrate-into-existing-frameworks stuff.

Thank you for stepping forward and sharing these ideas.

Wow, awesome post, thanks for sharing

You are so awesome! Thank you!

Lisa, thank you so much for posting all of your documents. This is my first time teaching this unit, and you are making the last 3 weeks of schools much easier. I really appreciate your sharing!

-Heather

This looks like a big help for my statistics unit. Thank you for sharing. How do you grade your learning targets?
