11 ) Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. [6-NS8]

[MA2015] (6) 25 :
25 ) Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. [6-SP1]

Example: "How old am I'" is not a statistical question, but "How old are the students in my school'" is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students' ages.

Title: Michael Phelps.... or not?

This lesson is created to have students compare themselves to Michael Phelps and the features that make him such a good swimmer. Students will measure their height and arm span and graph them on a coordinate graph. Students will then compare their height and arm span to their classmates' to see who might be the best swimmer in the class!

This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
