Our Basic Statistics lesson plan provides a comprehensive overview of basic statistics and gives students numerous activities to help solidify their understanding of these concepts. During this lesson, students are asked to create their own randomized data sets and then find the mean, median, mode, and range of each set in order to practice working with data sets of different sizes. They are also asked to answer vocabulary questions to ensure they understand each term fully.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define statistics and its relative terms such as mean, median, mode and range; and identify uses for statistics.
