Statistical Measurements

What was your age the first time you lost a tooth, broke a bone, or learned to ride a bike? Young mathematicians choose a set of data to examine with an educational instructional activity on statistical measurements. After they collect data and calculate the measures of central tendency and spread, they create a slideshow presentation with their calculations and include a description of the numbers.
