## Tuesday, March 24

All students will take a Statistics test on Thursday.

Today all students learned how to read and draw a Back to Back Stem and Leaf Plot. The homework tonight is problems 7-10 from TB page 667.

Advanced students were given ADV Back to Back Stem and Leaf and Histogram HW They should only complete problems 7-10 on the top of the front side as well. We have not discussed Histograms yet.

I will be distributed this review page tomorrow for Thursday’s test, however those of you who wish to work ahead may do so.

Data and Statistics Test – Math 6 Review ( Students will not be tested on problems 6, 14, or 15)

Data and Statistics test will be on Thursday.

All classes learned how to make a stem and leaf plot today. We also found Range, median and mode from the Stem and Leaf Plots. You may want to check out this website: http://www.basic-mathematics.com/stem-and-leaf-plot.html

This is a copy of some note that were similar to the examples I gave in class: Stem and Leaf Reteach Notes Answer Key HW: Problems 1-7 only on Stem and Leaf (Don’t worry about Problem #6. The range of that data is too high to list all the stems.

Advanced- Students learned how to identify the most appropriate measure of Central Tendency today (See Yellow handout in composition book). HW: ADV Appropriate Measures HW

## Tuesday, March 17

All classes took the Math Placement Test today. This is only one of the pieces of data used to help place students in their most appropriate math class. In the past, other data used to facilitate placement included Report Card grades and standardized testing scores. **Students and Parents will be notified of placement decisions for next year in late Spring or during Summer Registration. **

Homework from Monday will be checked tomorrow.
