What is Typical?

In future lessons you will use the data that the class collected to determine what is typical for a sixth grade student for each question. However, the way that you determine what is typical may differ, depending on the question.

Look back at the list of questions and the data you and the class collected.

  • Do you think it will be easier to decide what is typical for some questions versus other questions?
  • If so, for which questions do you think it will be easier?
  • For which questions do you think it will be more difficult? Why?
  • Discuss your thinking with a partner.
