Now that students have had practice conducting an experiment, having to do with the game, Skee-Ball, and whether or not their statistics conclude the notion – “practice makes perfect” - students will now be challenged to create their own topic/question, experiment, data collection methods, and display their data through a double-bar graph.

Organize and display single-variable data in appropriate graphs and representations (e.g., histogram, circle graphs) and explain which types of graphs are appropriate for various data sets.

Analyze problems by identifying relationships, distinguishing relevant from irrelevant information, sequencing and prioritizing information, and observing patterns.

Apply strategies and results from simpler problems to more complex problems.

Use a variety of methods, such as words, numbers, symbols, charts, graphs, tables, diagrams, and models, to explain mathematical reasoning.

Express the solution clearly and logically by using the appropriate mathematical notation and terms and clear language; support solutions with evidence in both verbal and symbolic work.

Develop generalizations of the results obtained and apply them in other circumstances.
