Clarification 2: Graphical representations are limited to histograms, line plots, box plots and stem-and-leaf plots.
Clarification 3: The measure of center is limited to mean and median. The measure of variation is limited to range and interquartile range.

|MA.7.DP.1.AP.1||Use context to determine the appropriate measure of center (mean or median) or range to summarize a numerical data set with 10 or fewer elements, represented numerically or graphically.|
|Height Research|| |
Students are asked to describe a method for collecting data in order to estimate the average height of 12 year old boys in the U.S.
|Water Troubles|| |
This Model Eliciting Activity (MEA) presents students with the real-world problem of contaminated drinking water. Students are asked to provide recommendations for a non-profit organization working to help a small Romanian village acquire clean drinking water. They will work to develop the best temporary strategies for water treatment, including engineering the best filtering solution using local materials. Students will utilize measures of center and variation to compare data, assess proportional relationships to make decisions, and perform unit conversions across different measurement systems.
|Rubber Band Races for Testing Measurement Accuracy|| |
This activity will send your measurement lab to new distances.
|Pump Up the Volume|| |
This activity is a statistical analysis of recorded measurements of a single value - in this case, a partially filled graduated cylinder.
|A Certain Uncertainty|| |
Students will measure the mass of one nickel 10 times on a digital scale precise to milligrams. The results will be statistically analyzed to find the error and uncertainty of the scale.
|All Numbers Are Not Created Equal|| |
Although a sheet of paper is much thinner than the divisions of a ruler, we can make indirect measurements of the paper's thickness.
