Title: Body Measures: Exploring Distributions and Graphs Using Cooperative Learning
Url: http://serc.carleton.edu/sp/cause/cooperative/examples/14045.html
Creator: Roseth, Cary J.
Publisher: University of Minnesota
Description: Using cooperative learning methods, this lesson introduces distributions for univariate data, emphasizing how distributions help us visualize central tendencies and variability. Students collect real data on head circumference and hand span, then describe the distributions in terms of shape, center, and spread. The lesson moves from informal to more technically appropriate descriptions of distributions.
