## 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.

CCSS: Designed

##### Instructional Ideas

• Guide pupils to select a data collection topic that would typically include outliers
• Extension possibilities: compare the calculations to each other or compare data collected from different class periods
