Students will analyze and discuss the features of the distributions of several variables. The class will be divided into 10 groups. Each group will be given an envelope containing 8 unique unscaled dot plot distributions and the list of the corresponding variables. Groups will spend time discussing and matching each distribution to its proper variable. A large group discussion will summarize findings and close out the lesson.
Length of time needed: 1 class period (55 minutes)
