Apple Harvest |
In this module students analyze real-world data relating to apple production and consumption. Looking at global and US data, students look at measures of central tendency by analyzing a box-and-whisker plot and later normal distribution graphs. Math topics covered include:
This module includes three videos that provide examples, definitions, and real-world context. Supplement this module with hands-on activities where students calculate their own data from random samples. |
