Season 2, Episode 2: Data, Box & Whisker Plots, Graphs of Central Tendency

Presented by Amy Vickers (MNI Senior Consultant) and Andy Albee (Robbinsdale Adult Academic Program)

Representing Variability with Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

This resource gives students practice with calculating the mean, median, mode, and range from a frequency chart. It also requires students to use a frequency chart to describe a possible data set, given information on the mean, median, mode, and range.

Season 1, Episode 2: Connecting and Interpreting Graphs and Functions

Presented by Andy Albee (Robbinsdale Adult Academic Program) and Renae Kramer (SW ABE-Granite Falls)

Representing Data with Grouped Frequency Graphs and Box Plots

"This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to interpret frequency graphs that use grouped data and their associated box plots. In particular this unit aims to identify and help students who have difficulty interpreting information from frequency graphs and box plots; such as minimum and maximum values, medians and quartiles."

Linear Matching

A printable matching activity for matching graphs to equations.

Graphing Stories

These are 15-second videos that show a real-life event. Students are encouraged to graph the event. The video reveals the suggested graph at the end. The site allows you to sort by type of graph and offers a printable graphing handout. Appropriate for CCRS Level C, Level D, Level E.

Desmos: Linear Inequalities in Standard Form

Desmos is an online graphing calculator. Many teachers have created activities for their classes using the calculator. Activities on the site are created by teachers and Desmos staff and will vary. You can also create your own activities.

Create a Graph

You and your students can use this online tool to create graphs.

Desmos: Graphing

What if students could "play" with graphs and quickly see what changing a single component would do to a graph (such as changing the b in y =mx+b)? Desmos is user friendly and thoughtfully uses color and layout in ways that support students' understanding. 

180 Ways to Use Estimation 180: Inequalities

Estimation 180 is an incredibly rich resource that offers photographs that we can use in meaningfully developing students' number sense. In this blog post, the author uses 4 of the images (and the students' estimates about those images) to quickly and meaningfully introduce (or review) graphing and writing inequalities.
