Overview:

Discover how calculating median and mean reveal different ways to describe a center of distribution in this 9-minute video from the Against All Odds statistics series. This video resource will examine differences in comparable wages for men and women to see practical applications of statistics and data visualization.

Mathematics
MA2015 (2016)
Grade: 9-12
Algebra I
42 ) Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets. [S-ID2]


Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards
AAS Standard:
M.AAS.SP.HS.42- Given two dot plots representing two different data sets, identify which data set has the greater maximum, median, or range.


Mathematics
MA2015 (2016)
Grade: 9-12
Algebra I
43 ) Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers). [S-ID3]


Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards
AAS Standard:
M.AAS.SP.HS.43- Interpret general trends on a graph or chart (increase/decrease).

40 ) Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers). (Identify unifrom, skewed, and normal distridutions in a set of data. Determine the quartiles and interquartile range for a set of data.) [S-ID3] (Alabama)

39 ) Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets. (Focus on increasing rigor using standard deviation). [S-ID2] (Alabama)

Mathematics
MA2015 (2016)

41 ) Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and to estimate population percentages. Recognize that there are data sets for which such a procedure is not appropriate. Use calculators, spreadsheets, and tables to estimate areas under the normal curve. [S-ID4]
