Mastering Statistics and Probability Standards Grades: 6-8

Let's take a look at the last of our five Common Core math standards: Statistics and Probability. It's likely that this is the last standard you cover in the school year, and it might sometimes even get overlooked. This collection is intended to help you revamp your Statistics and Probability instruction and make it the most exciting unit in your curriculum.

    This extensive handbook was developed as a staff development training. It contains a ton of useful information, including a vocabulary glossary, sample lesson plans, and adaptations for teaching concepts to students at different levels.

    I love this PowerPoint! It takes the work out of developing a classroom ready presentation to explain the concept of probability to your students. Less time prepping, more time teaching. It has great notes for your students and also provides several practice problems to assess their understanding.
  • Meghann Urewicz says:
    This website offers an extensive list of grade-level specific lesson plans. These lesson plans are high engagement and really help to develop statistical thinking. I also love that the lesson plans are K-12 so you can easily adapt lower or higher lesson plans to differentiate for different skill levels.

    Get your students to start thinking statistically while engaging them with other students all over the world. This project allows students to compare data that they collect, to other students data worldwide.

    PBS has some great learning tools for the middle school classroom. This page shows a collection of videos that cover the Statistics and Probability standards. What's even better is that the videos are paired with support materials, such as worksheets and classroom activities.
