Unit 6: Statistics Performance Task:

What is a typical 6th grader like???

1) ________ Come up with 3 statistical questions to survey your peers about. You may need to
include answer choices for each one. The questions must yield numerical data. Be
creative with your questions! Make them interesting!

2) ________ What do you predict? Write a paragraph (minimum 3 sentences) for EACH of your 3
questions, predicting the outcomes. What do you think will be typical?

(Steps 2 & 3 MUST be submitted and approved before conducting your survey.)

3) ________ Conduct your survey! Ask a minimum of 25 sixth graders.

4) ________ Graph your data for each question. You must have one dot plot, one histogram, and
one box plot. Each graph MUST be neat, in color, and titled. Include axis labels when
necessary.

5) ________ Analyze your findings. For each question/graph, write a paragraph to explain your
conclusions from your survey. Include at least: one measure of center, one measure
of spread, and an observation about the shape for each graph. (But do not use
the
exact same measure for each question/graph.) Also, compare your findings to your
predictions. Were you surprised by anything, or were you on point?

6) ________ Display your project! You may create a poster, PowerPoint, Prezi, PowToon, booklet,
video, brochure, etc. Be creative, NEAT, and thorough!

*It is your choice to work alone or in a pair. If you work in a pair, you must have a total of SIX questions instead of three.
