• Using Data to Answer a Question
• Toying with Measures of Central Tendency
Discuss the following:
Give a brief, one paragraph summary of the expanded lesson

1. Summary of Lesson: The bar graph lesson is an exceptional lesson in that it allows students to take statistical information and pair that information with visual representations. In addition to being able to take a statistical set of information and to then transform that information into a pictorial representation allows the student of record to deepen his her understanding of statistics (Van de Walle & Bay-Williams, 2013). Additionally, after taking the information of record and transposing it into a graph, the student then gets the opportunity in the proposed lesson to ...
