Comparing Data

Eighth graders create a survey, gather data and describe the data using measures of central tendency (mean, median and mode) and spread (range, quartiles, and interquartile range). Students use these measures to interpret, compare and draw conclusions about what the data show. Conclusions and convincing arguments to support those conclusions are incorporated into class discussion and a formal presentation.
