Develop understanding of statistical variability.
6.SP.1. Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.

6.SP.1.1. Ability to introduce and develop statistical reasoning.
6.SP.3. Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
6.SP.3.1. Knowledge of median and mean as measures of center.
6.SP.3.2. Knowledge of range as a measure of variation.
6.SP.3.3. Ability to look at a set of data and estimate the measures of center.
