Reviewing Statistical Questions

Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

During the class discussion, take notes about interesting statistical questions that other students present.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Will the question help us find out something about a typical sixth grade student?
  • Are the answers numerical?
  • Will the answers vary?
  • Is the wording of the question clear? Could respondents be confused or interpret it in different ways?
