Exploring “What’s Typical?” Using Graphical Displays of Data

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Speakers: Gail Burrill, Robin Levine-Wissing

Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “What’s typical?”

Well-chosen graphs can help answer that question. What kinds of graphs, and what features of those graphs, are useful? What are some limitations of statistical graphs?

During this webinar, the first in a series of AP* Statistics sessions, presenters will:

  • Develop key concepts related to choosing and interpreting univariate and bivariate graphical displays
  • Relate those concepts to the AP* testing experience
  • Demonstrate how technology-based activities can facilitate exploration and enhance understanding
  • Guide participants in the use of TI technology tools for graphing, exploration and answering questions about variability (i.e., "What's typical?")

Both TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ technology will be used.
