Description:

In this activity, students input data to be represented in a histogram. Students can adjust the interval size using a slider bar and they can also adjust the other scales on the graph. This activity allows students to explore histograms as a way to represent data as well as the concepts of mean, standard deviation, and scale. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

Update Standards?

CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.C.4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.

CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.D.10: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.3: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step "how many more" and "how many less" problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).
