This lab is based on one from Illowski and Dean's Collaborative Statistics book. Students collect data and then calculate the measure of central tendency and dispersion. They create a histogram and a box plot. They look at outliers and use Chebyshev’s theorem to look at the dispersion of the data. Student Learning Objectives • The student will construct a histogram and a box plot. • The student will calculate univariate statistics. • The student will examine the graphs to interpret what the data implies.
This resource was reviewed using the Curriki Review rubric and received an overall Curriki Review System rating of 3, as of 2011-09-29.
Although this lab asks that the graphs be created using minitab, any software can be used or the work can be done by hand.
In addition the students will need to have seen Chebyshev’s theorem in class as it is not given in the lab.
