Unit 6, Lesson 11# Describing Distributions Using the Mean and MAD (Continued)

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use the mean and MAD to describe a data distribution in terms of center and variability. Students use the mean and MAD to describe similarities and differences between two distributions. This lesson is similar to Lesson 10 and focuses on describing distributions in terms of center and variability using the mean and the MAD. Students compare two data distributions and comment on similarities and differences in shape, center, and variability.
