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.
