Math Grade 6 Quiz Summarizing Numerical Data Sets – 6.SP.B.5

The Common Core State Standard (CCSS) for Mathematics 6.SP.B.5 focuses on the ability to summarize numerical data sets in context. This involves various methods, such as reporting the number of observations, describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement, and giving quantitative measures of center (median and mean) and variability (interquartile range and mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.
