Our Data Collection and Distribution lesson plan teaches students about data and how it can be collected and distributed.  During this lesson, students are asked to complete an activity in which they collect data, create a bar graph of that data, calculate the measures of center, and then describe the center, spread, and shape of the data. Students are also asked to look at example data distributions, describe them, and answer questions about them.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand that a set of data has a distribution which can be described by its center, shape, and spread.
