"In this problem, student groups serve as mediators to settle a dispute between the owner and the union of a small manufacturing company. ... This is a really engaging problem that raises important questions about the way data, often perceived as being completely objective, can be biased and informed by perspective."
"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."
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.
