Cluster: Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts
Cluster: Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable. (Algebra 1 - Additional Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Additional Cluster) -

Remarks/Examples

In grades 6 – 8, students describe center and spread in a data distribution. Here they choose a summary statistic appropriate to the characteristics of the data distribution, such as the shape of the distribution or the existence of extreme data points.
