Math Grade 6 Quiz Quantitative Measures of Center and Variability – 6.SP.B.5.C
This standard, CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5.C, equips students with the skills to understand, calculate, and interpret the quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation). Students learn to analyze data for patterns and deviations, which involves discerning the central tendency and spread within data sets and understanding these concepts within realworld contexts.
