6th Grade Math Statistics

In Grade 6, students are expected to develop a solid foundation in statistics that will prepare them for more advanced math courses. The Common Core Standards for Mathematics emphasize the importance of statistics as a fundamental skill for success in higher mathematics courses.


Grade 6 students should be able to collect, organize, and display data using tables, graphs, and charts. They should be able to interpret these displays of data to answer questions and make conclusions. Students should also be able to calculate measures of central tendency, such as mean, median, and mode, and understand how to apply them to real-world situations.


To achieve these objectives, teachers should incorporate a range of teaching methods, such as hands-on activities, visual aids, and technology-based tools, to engage students and reinforce their understanding of statistical concepts. In addition, teachers should provide opportunities for students to work collaboratively and communicate their findings effectively.


Through the study of statistics, students will develop their critical thinking skills and their ability to make informed decisions based on data. They will also learn how to analyze and interpret data, skills that are important for success in many areas of life, including business, science, and public policy.


Overall, a strong foundation in statistics is essential for success in higher-level math courses and in life. By providing students with a comprehensive understanding of statistical concepts, teachers can help prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of the future.
