Suppose that the weight of elisha s backpack is 17 pounds rather than 18. Relate the choice of center and spread to the shape of the distribution.
There might be only one 59 6 and one 37 8 etc.
Dot plot data distribution worksheets. Describe the spread center and shape of the dot plot given below. Draw a dot plot for the new distribution. For each response put a dot above the number line at the correct spot.
For dot plot write a number line on the board. The data values are clustered around the center of the distribution. A baseball team manager records the number of runs scored by the team in each game for several weeks.
The ages of 22 students in a karate class are given below. A dot plot is a visual representation of data using intervals or categories of variables. C what is the mode of the data.

D how many players are greater than 70 inches tall. New vocabulary distribution symmetric shape of data distributions parasailing the line plot shows the costs in dollars for parasailing for different. Plot a has 7 dots.
The data values are spread out from 3 to 7 with no outliers. The distribution is symmetric. Lesson 13 shape of data distributions 57 main idea describe a data distribution by its center spread and overall shape.
Plot b s median is 23. The dot plot here shows. Plot b s mode is 23 and 24 bi modal.
Ask students what the median of the dot plot is. It s the middle number b. The answer is to group the data put it into bins.
Plot a is skewed to the left so its central measures are shifted toward the lower values. Draw a dot plot for these data and calculate the mean and mad. The data has a cluster from 3 to 7 with one peak at 5 which is the center of the distribution.
In this case let s try rounding every value to the nearest 10. The students in one social studies class were asked how many brothers and sisters siblings they each have. Ask five students how many children they have.
Nearly all values will have just one dot. Plot a s median is 21. Plot b is skewed to the right so its.
