Activity Description

In this activity, students will engage in an exploration of dot plots and gain proficiency in determining essential statistical measures for given datasets. Students are given three dot plots representing three different real-world scenarios, they will calculate the mean, mode, median and range of the data represented in each of the dot plots.

This worksheet is a classroom-ready interactive and dynamic worksheet that just needs a few clicks to assign to your classroom. The worksheet is auto-scored, teachers just need to open the real-time console and monitor the student progress.

Learning Objective

The primary objective of this worksheet is to equip students with the skills to analyze dot plots, calculate the mean, mode, median, and range for various datasets, and interpret the significance of these measures in understanding data distribution and characteristics.

Common Core: MATH

Statistics & Probability

Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.

Statistics & Probability

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

Statistics & Probability

Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar variabilities, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of variability. *For example, the mean height of players on the basketball team is 10 cm greater than the mean height of players on the soccer team, about twice the variability (mean absolute deviation) on either team; on a dot plot, the separation between the two distributions of heights is noticeable*.
