Title:
Infograms: Show Your Data!
Digital Tool/Resource:
Infogram

Overview:

Infogram allows you to easily take data and create infographics. Use charts as well as pictures to display data into an easy to read and understand and attractive digital poster that can be displayed alone or embedded into a website.

18 ) Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. [7-SP2]

Example: Estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.

Mathematics
MA2019 (2019)
Grade: 6
23. Calculate, interpret, and compare measures of center (mean, median, mode) and variability (range and interquartile range) in real-world data sets.

a. Determine which measure of center best represents a real-world data set.

b. Interpret the measures of center and variability in the context of a problem.

Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards
AAS Standard:
M.AAS.6.23 Find the range and median (when given an odd number of data points), and mean (involving one or two-digit numbers) in real-world situations.


Mathematics

Grade: 6
24. Represent numerical data graphically, using dot plots, line plots, histograms, stem and leaf plots, and box plots.

a. Analyze the graphical representation of data by describing the center, spread, shape (including approximately symmetric or skewed), and unusual features (including gaps, peaks, clusters, and extreme values).

b. Use graphical representations of real-world data to describe the context from which they were collected.

Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards
AAS Standard:
M.AAS.6.24 Interpret graphical representations of a data set (e.g. line plot, dot plots, bar graphs, stem and leaf plots, or line graphs).


Mathematics

Grade: 7
10. Examine a sample of a population to generalize information about the population.

a. Differentiate between a sample and a population.

b. Compare sampling techniques to determine whether a sample is random and thus representative of a population, explaining that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.

c. Determine whether conclusions and generalizations can be made about a population based on a sample.

d. Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest, generating multiple samples to gauge variation and making predictions or conclusions about the population.

e. Informally explain situations in which statistical bias may exist.

AAS Standard:
M.AAS.7.10 Find the range and median (when given an odd number of data points), and mean (involving one or two-digit numbers) in real-world situations.


Learning Objectives:

Students will analyze data and then design an infographic to display the researched data. 

  Strategies, Preparations and Variations  
Phase:
During/Explore/Explain
Activity:

The students will gather informational data about a topic of research. The students will use the data to create a spread sheet and import to infogram to design a poster. 

Assessment Strategies:

Rubric used while looking at completed poster. 


Advanced Preparation:

Decide how students will set up accounts or set up a class account. Ensure Internet access and computers/tablets are available for the students. 

Variation Tips (optional):

This is also a great to do before actually writing a research paper.
