## Resources and Study Tools

**Mean, Median, Mode, and Range (6th grade textbook)**

__Introduction Video__- this should serve as a tool to review from 6th grade!

__These videos__show the types of questions we will be working on in Math Lab. Students should be able to find a missing data point when given a mean. Students should also be able to determine how the mean will change based upon outliers in a data set. This is an excellent resource before a test or a quiz.

**Data Displays (6th grade textbook)**

__Differences between data display methods__

__Line Plots__

Explanation and Example Video

__Box and Whisker Plots__

How to construct a Box and Whisker Plot

Create your own

__here__! This is a great tool to see what a plot would look like after inputting larger amounts of data.

__Shape of Distribution__- it is important to know if the mean is to the left (less than), to the right (greater than) or equal to the median based upon the shape of distribution.

**Measures of Variation (6th grade textbook)**

__Interquartile Range__
