Activities
 Sharing Numbers from Francis Su  The teacher selects a number from 1 to 9 and tells 3 students. Each student has to either add 1 or double the number they've been told to get their number. Then each of them tell 3 other people their number, etc. until everyone in the room had a number. Each student estimates the mean and median of the of numbers in the room then writes their number on the board (or submits it electronically) so that the actual mean and median can be calculated. This is a good problem to get folks thinking like data scientists!
 Boxplot Polygraph Activity on Desmos  Students use statistics vocabulary (mean, quartiles and the 5number summary) to identify a specific boxplot.
 Data and Standard Deviation from Bryan Anderson  Directions: Using the numbers 1 to 9, using each only once, create a data set of 4 numbers that fit the following criteria: The four numbers have the smallest possible standard deviation: ___ , ___ , ___ , ___. The four numbers have the largest possible standard deviation:___ , ___ , ___ , ___
 What Does The Normal Distribution Sound Like? Popcorn!  A youtube video that shows popcorn popping alongside a bar graph. You can also use a video showing popcorn popping in a Stir Crazy popcorn popper.
