## Data Analysis and Probability

Represent and interpret data in bar graphs and pictographs.

5.5.1

DP

- All The Parts - ( 3-5 ) learn the parts of a graph
- Bar Graph - Enter data to create a bar graph, then manipulate the graph's maximum and minimum values.
- Circle Graph - Enter data categories and the value of each category to create a circle graph (similar to "Pie Chart" but the user can define the data set)
- Comparative Bar Graphs - read the graph and answer questions
- Create-a-Graph - lessons and activities on a variety of graphs
- Data Picking - Students collect data, enter tally marks or numbers and then select which graph is appropriate.
- The Hot Tub - This is a fun activity where students tell the story behind a graph and relate slope to rate of change.
- How It All Stacks Up - interpret and compare information using a bar graph
- Interpreting Column Graphs - students practice by answering ten questions about the graph
- Interpreting Data - survey a small group by clicking on each of the children, turn the tally marks into two types of graphs and then go back and take a different survey

- Interpreting Data Quiz - after you finish the lesson above, take this quiz

- What percentage has been shaded - Guess the percent of the shaded pie chart ( extremely difficult )
Determine the mean, median, and mode of a data set.

5.5.3 - median

DP

- All That Data Two - describe graphs in terms of range, measures of central tendency, and distribution
- Central Tendency Generator - Create your own online worksheet with your specifications as to mean, mode, and median.
- Jupiter Is Average - Using data from our solar system, students explore median, mode, mean, and range. Students learn to use an on-line calculator to determine the mean and range.
- Mean Green Machine - use a calculator to find and use the average, or mean, of a set of data
- Mean, Median, and Mode Calculator - enter numbers separated by comma and then calculate
- Medians - understand and apply the concepts of median and mean
- Mode, Mean, Median - calculate mode, median and mode of a set of buildings, then repeat the activity with a different set - (metric measurements)
- Landmark Chart Numbers - Range, mean, median, and mode
- Party Comedian - find and use the median of a set of data
Determine the mean, median, and mode of a data set.

5.5.4 - mode

DP

- Basketball Debate - explore the meaning of average (or mean) and relate these concepts to real world experiences
- Bicycles Ala Mode - understand and apply the concepts of mean, median and mode
- Central Tendency Generator - Create your own online worksheet with your specifications as to mean, mode, and median
- Mode, Mean, Median - Interactive lesson followed by activities (UK measurements)
- Landmark Chart Numbers - Range, mean, median, and mode
- Party Mode - find and use the mode of a set of data
Determine the most likely, least likely, or equally likely outcomes in simple experiments.

5.5.5

DP

- Chances Are - predict the likelihood of events using a circle graph with percentages as a model
- Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger dataset)
- Hand Squeeze - (a data collection and analysis class experiment) - Pass a "hand squeeze" around a circle and measure the amount of time that it takes for the hand squeeze to complete the circle.
- Heads I Win - predict the likelihood of tossing heads or tails and graphs the results of coin tosses
- Leap Frog - design an experiment to answer a question, collect information, and interpret the results using charts.
- Me Too Probability - use a tree diagram to display possible outcomes of who will come to the party
- Pin The Tail - use probability to predict and conduct experiments to test predictions
- The Random Ball-Picking Machine - experiment with a random generator at a BBC site to collect data to make decisions about probability.

- After you finish working through the ball-picking activity, take a ten-question probability quiz
- Spy Guys Interactive - Probability - Lesson 19
- What are Your Chances - What many people refer to as 'good luck' can actually be explained by a little knowledge about probability and statistics. Our dice game allows you to see how increasing or decreasing the number of dice rolls effects an outcome.
- What Percentage of your Class is Right or Left Handed? - a data collection and analysis class experiment
- Why Can't I Win? - use a spinner to predict the likelihood of simple events occurring
- What Are My Chances - explore probability and ratios
Represent the likelihood of an event using a fractional number from zero to one.

5.5.6

DP

- Lions and Tigers - predict the likelihood of a simple event (rolling a die) as a fraction
Determine the mean, median, and mode of a data set.

5.5.7 - mean

DP

- Central Tendency Generator - Create your own online worksheet with your specifications as to mean, mode, and median
- Jupiter Is Average - Using data from our solar system, students explore median, mode, mean, and range. Students learn to use an on-line calculator to determine the mean and range.
- Mode, Mean, Median - Interactive lesson followed by activities (UK measurements)
Make predictions based on data.

5.5.8

AT

- Bean Pi - To involve students in a small group exploration of the concept of area for circles, and to involve students in data collection.
- Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger dataset)
- Fun and Sun Rent-a-Car - students use tables, graphs, linear functions to solve a real-world problem
