CCSS 6th Grade Statistics and Probability 1.0
Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability
in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the
answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question,
but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical
question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
Lesson to be used by EDI-trained teachers only.
Concept Development
A statistical question expects variability2 in the data3 collected.
• A statistical question is a question that can be investigated4 by collecting a set of data.
Statistical Question
Javier spent 6 hours on math homework last week.
He wants to investigate how much time the students
in his classroom spend doing math homework.
Data Set
“How many hours a week do my
classmates spend on math homework?”
The statistical question can be answered by collecting data on
how many hours students spend on math homework in a week.
Variability in the data collected can be expected because
some students may finish homework faster than others.
