## Grade 6 Mathematics Module 6, Topic B, Lesson 8 Student Outcomes

• Students interpret the mean of a data set as a “typical” value.
• Students compare and contrast two small data sets that have the same mean but different amounts of variability.
• Students see that a data distribution is not characterized only by its center.  Its spread or variability must be considered as well.
• Students informally evaluate how precise the mean is as an indicator of the typical value of a distribution, based on the variability exhibited in the data.
• Students use dot plots to order distributions according to the variability around the mean for each of the data distributions.
