Probability &amp; Statistics
WOODLAND HILLS HIGH SCHOOL
LESSON PLANS
Length of Lesson: 13 days
STAGE I – DESIRED RESULTS
Lesson Topic (Standards/Anchors):
Big Ideas:
Understanding Goals (Concepts):
Topic 3:
Displaying &amp; Describing Distributions
M11.E.1.1.1 Create and/or use appropriate
graphical representations of data, including boxand-whisker plots, stem-and-leaf plots or scatter
plots.
Describing distributions of data (center, shape,
M11.E.1.1.2 Analyze data and/or answer questions
based on displayed data (box-and-whisker plots,
stem-and-leaf plots or scatter plots).
Measuring the center of quantitative data
distributions (mean and median) and qualitative
data distributions (mode).
Construct/interpret data displayed in stemplots
(and variations) as well as histograms
M11.D.1.1.1 Analyze a set of data for the existence
of a pattern and represent the pattern algebraically
and/or graphically.
Student Objectives (Competencies/Outcomes):
Essential Questions:
Vocabulary:
Students will be able to:
 Develop a checklist of features for distributions
of data
 Calculate the center of a distribution of
quantitative or qualitative data
 Construct, read and describe information given
in one of many display types (stemplot, dotplot,
histogram, bar graph, etc)
1. What features of a distribution are important?
2. How is the center of a distribution calculated
(mean, median, mode)?
3. How are graphing calculators used to calculate
the center of a distribution?
shape (skewed left/right, symmetric, even/equal),
outliers, granularity, peaks and clusters, stemplots,
histogram
STAGE II – ASSESSMENT EVIDENCE
Other Evidence:
Students will participate during class discussion and completion of in-class
assignments, use extra class time to complete homework activities, and will ask
questions as needed to grasp “Big Ideas” daily.
Students will complete all assigned activities by the test date. Also, students
will undergo informal questioning for understanding daily throughout the
course.
STAGE III – LEARNING PLAN
Materials and Resources:
Interventions:
Workshop Statistics textbook, folder/binder, graphing calculator
After school tutoring (Math Lab)
