The title of my unit is going to be, "Statistics: Analyzing Data using the Stock Market". The students are going to explore measures of central tendency, bar graphs, histograms, using graphs to predict, and using data to predict. The students will also be discussing misleading statistics during this unit. This unit will have the students exploring different stocks on the stock market in order to explore those various mathematical statistical representations. My essential question is, "Are we mislead in our daily lives?". My unit questions are, "How is statistical data misleading?", and "How can we represent statistical data so it isn't misleading?". My content questions are "What is statistical data?", "How do we represent statistical data?", "What are some ways that statistical data is used?", and "How can we use graphs and data to predict?".
