Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

  • Take notes as your classmates present their histograms.


As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you decide what bin width to use for your histogram?
  • What problems did you have in creating the histogram for your data about a sixth grade student? How did you deal with those problems?
  • Can you explain what your histogram tells us about your data for a sixth grade student?
