Discussion Questions
Under what conditions might it be appropriate to use the mean? Median? Mode? When the median and mean are substantially different, what does that tell you about the data? What information does the range and standard deviation provide about the data?
Consider responding to your classmates by providing real-life examples that support their responses. Enhance their responses by providing additional details about measures of central tendency and spread.
Choose two of the following types of displays: dot plots, stem and leaf plots, histographs, pictographs, line plots, or circle graphs. In which situations is it appropriate to display data using each type you selected? When is it inappropriate to use the data displays you selected?
Respond to students who chose different displays than you. Ask clarifying questions if you need more explanation. Are the other situations in which the type of display your classmates selected would be appropriate or inappropriate for the data?
