## Teacher Page

This Webquest was designed as part of my eMINTS comprehensive training. It was created to help students learn about the different ways to interrupt data to answer the same question. All students will see the same tables, charts, and graphs, but all groups will answer the question in different ways. This opens up the idea that data can be manipulated based on the outlook of the viewer.

## The Learners

This sixth grade mathematics lesson covers statistical variability and extends over to seventh grade for interpretation purposes. Students will need to understand the basics of different tables, charts, and graphs. A short review on the different parts of a graph will help students be more successful long term.

## Standards

The main goal of this unit is to develop understanding of statistical variability.

Common Core State Standards covered in this lesson are:

ISTE Standards for Students covered in this lesson are:

Common Core State Standards covered in this lesson are:

- 6.SP.1 Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.
- 6.SP.2 Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.
- 6.SP.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.

ISTE Standards for Students covered in this lesson are:

- 2.a-d Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information
- 4.c Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources by collecting and analyzing data to make informed decisions

## Criteria for Success

Students will be working in groups of three to dig through data given to them about five very different people. Each student will be assigned a role to perform. Each day the roles will rotate so that each student can be an active participant throughout the entire process. Students will first watch videos to help them decide what it means to be "the best". Will they determine that fame is better than money? Or that money is better than class rank? They will get to decide. Once they decide, they can look through websites about each person to decide who fits their criteria. Then the group will work on creating an online poster to represent their determination of who is "the best".

Roles and Responsibilities:

There are two formative assessments that take place along the way. Students will need to submit their definition of what it means to be "the best". They will also need to include a plan for what they will be looking for when deciding who is the best out of the five given choices. After researching people, students will then submit their data that they plan to use to show their audience that their choice really is the best. Upon approval, students will then create their summative assessment.

People to research:

- Babe Ruth
- Elvis Presley
- Michael Jordan
- Steve Jobs
- Queen Elizabeth

Roles and Responsibilities:

- Technology Specialist --in charge of using the computer for the class period
- Recorder --takes notes for the day and keeps all notes until tomorrow
- Speaker --is the only person allowed to ask other groups or the teacher questions
