Math (TAG): Data Representations and Analysis

Suggested Time Frame: 14 Instructional Days

        

Focus TEKS
  • 6.12A represent numeric data graphically, including dot plots, stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and box plots (S)
    • 7.12A compare two groups of numeric data using comparative dot plots or box plots by comparing their shapes, centers, and spreads (R)
  • 6.12B use the graphical representation of numeric data to describe the center, spread, and shape of the data distribution (S)
  • 6.12C summarize numeric data with numerical summaries, including the mean and median (measures of center) and the range and interquartile range (IQR) (measures of spread), and use these summaries to describe the center, spread, and shape of the data distribution (R)
  • 6.12D summarize categorical data with numerical and graphical summaries, including the mode, the percent of values in each category (relative frequency table), and the percent bar graph, and use these summaries to describe the data distribution (R)
  • 6.13A interpret numeric data summarized in dot plots, stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and box plots (R)
    • 7.6F/7.12B use data from a random sample to make inferences about a population (S)
    • 7.6G solve problems using data represented in bar graphs, dot plots, and circle graphs, including part-to-whole and part-to-part comparisons and equivalents (R)
    • 7.12C compare two populations based on data in random samples from these populations, including informal comparative inferences about differences between the two populations (S)
  • 6.13B distinguish between situations that yield data with and without variability (S)
Computational Fluency TEKS

Integer Number Line Work, Equivalent Forms of Numbers, Fluency with Tables and Graphs

  • 6.2C locate, compare, and order integers and rational numbers using a number line (S)
  • 6.4G generate equivalent forms of fractions, decimals, and percents using real-world problems, including problems that involve money (R)
Spiral Review TEKS

Reviewing 5th Grade Data Representations and Strip Diagrams for the Four Operations

  • 5.9A represent categorical data with bar graphs or frequency tables and numerical data, including data sets of measurements in fractions or decimals, with dot plots or stem-and-leaf plots (S)
  • 5.9C solve one- and two-step problems using data from a frequency table, dot plot, bar graph, stem-and-leaf plot, or scatterplot (R)
    • Multiply and Divide Whole Numbers (Represent Problems and Solve Them)
      • 5.4B represent and solve multi-step problems involving the four operations with whole numbers using equations [and strip diagrams] with a letter standing for the unknown quantity; – R RC2
