Math Grade 6 Quiz Relating Measures of Center and Variability to Data Distribution – 6.SP.B.5.D
This educational standard calls for students to understand and interpret the measures of center (mean, median, and mode) and variability (range, interquartile range, mean absolute deviation) within the context of the data’s distribution. Students are expected to relate these statistical measures to the shape of the data distribution, acknowledging that different types of data and different shapes of distributions might require different measures for the most accurate representation.
