Paperclip Statistics

This Paperclip Statistics lesson plan also includes:

Begin with an attention-grabbing activity: have individuals link as many paper clips together as they can in a two-minute time span. Collect the results into a data table, which they will then display in a graph or plot. They calculate different measures of center and discuss which best represent the data. This is an inviting and instructional activity to help teach CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.5.c and CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.5.d in your sixth grade math class.
