Statistical analysis: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Statistical analysis. Students have knowledge of various representations of data and can now extend this to comparison. Students compare many data sets of numerical variables to make comparisons using appropriate mathematical vocabulary. Students consider the shape and spread of the distributions of data, consider the distribution of the centre, and make note of outliers making comment on symmetry or skew.
