Secondary Lesson Plan Template Topic of lesson: Graphical Representations Lesson 3 Length of class: 50 minutes Standard(s) to be addressed in this lesson: 7.SP.1. Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of the population. Enduring Understandings/Essential Questions targeted in this lesson: Statistics is the process of collecting, organizing, analyzing, and interpreting data to make and evaluate inferences and predictions about our world How can we use statistics to study and analyze the world? Learning Objectives for this lesson (Written using verbs from Blooms Taxonomy): Students will solve for the mean, median, and mode for a data set with 100% accuracy. Students will describe and give examples of use for multiple graphical representations on the quick write accurately. Instructional method(s) chosen in this lesson (and why): Collaborative learning was chosen because this lesson lends itself to discussion with small groups and brainstorming multiple examples. Materials/Resources: -Pencil/paper -Classroom notes sheet -Mean, Median, Mode worksheet Lesson Sequence: (How will you organize your lesson?) 1. Intro: bar graph and histogram will be displayed on the board and students should explain the differences between the two. 2. Review of mean, median, and mode Mean: average Median: the middle number, if there is no middle number, find the average of the two middle numbers Mode: most often Do an example together. 3. Have students find the mean, median, and mode for the data on their homework

and have them turn it in to be graded. Small groups will brainstorm all the different types of graphical representations. Share to get a comprehensive list: Stem and leaf plot, histogram, line graph, dot plot, bar graph, pie chart When is the best time to use these? Have students work through examples and non examples of each, share to the whole class. What can you analyze from these different graphs? We will focus primarily on histograms, dot plots, and stem and leaf plots. Closure: Quick write responding to the following scenario. A student knows nothing about graphs, give a short explanation of bar graph, histogram, dot plot, and stem and leaf plot and when each one should be used.

Assessment of learning (How will I know if students achieved my learning objectives?) I can collect the homework and assess their understanding of mean, median, and mode. The quick write will show me if students understand different types of graphs and when the appropriate time to use them is. Lesson Checklist Did I hook my students by getting them excited about the topic? Did I introduce my learning objectives to the students (even if I just posted them in the room)? Are my learning objectives aligned with my state standards? Did I choose an instructional strategy/activity appropriate to the purpose(s) of the lesson? Did I organize my lesson clearly? Did I account for any downtime and/or transitions? Did I model or provide guided practice (if necessary)? Did I scaffold student learning (if necessary)? Did I assess my students learning (formative or summative)? Did I successfully bring the lesson to a within the allotted time? Did I provide a bridge to the next lesson in my unit sequence? Did I provide anchor/enrichment activities for students who complete the lesson early (if necessary)? Did I differentiate for my individual students needs?

Warm up:

What are the similarities and differences of these two graphs? MEAN, MEDIAN, MODE: MEAN: Average. Add the data numbers up and divide by the number of data points MEDIAN: The middle number. If there is no 1 middle number, find the average of the 2 middle numbers MODE: Most often Do an example together: 24, 11, 19, 23, 12, 24, 11, 29, 16 In small groups brainstorm all the different types of graphical representations: Stem and leaf plot Histogram Line graph Dot plot Bar graph Pie chart When is the best time to use each of these? What can you analyze from these different graphs?

Quick Write: A student knows nothing about graphs; give a short explanation of a bar graph, histogram, and stem and leaf plot. When should each be used?
