Math Grade 6 Quiz Data Distribution: Center, Spread, and Shape – 6.SP.A.2
When we collect data, it’s not just a random jumble of numbers; it tells a story. This story can be described using three main aspects: the center, the spread, and the overall shape of the distribution. The center refers to the middle value of the dataset, while the spread refers to how much the data varies. The shape could be symmetrical, skewed, etc., depending on how the data points are distributed. Understanding these aspects helps us to analyze and interpret data correctly.
