The following are 6th grade Math scores on the Unit 7 Test: 87, 93, 94, 72, 68, 75, 92, 89, 88, 89.

Write a statistical question that you could ask to obtain the above data.

Calculate the measure of center for the data (mean, median, and mode). Which measure or center best represents the
data? Explain fully.

Calculate the measures of spread for the data (range and mean absolute deviation). Which measure of spread best
represents the data? Explain fully.

Create a frequency table that includes cumulative and relative frequency for the data above.

Create a histogram for the data above. Is the histogram approximately symmetrical or skewed? What does this tell you

Create a box-and-whisker plot for the data above. Include all work to calculate the medians and quartiles. What is the
interquartile range (IQR)?


Write a statistical question that you could ask to obtain the results above.
Create a circle graph of the data. Show all work.

Create a line plot for the number of letters in a student’s name if 5 students participated, the mean was 9 letters, the mode
was 10, and the range was 8 letters.
