This curriculum project offers a complete Statistics unit plan designed for Algebra 1 students. The unit plan consists of twelve statistics lessons, three of which include student-led data collection and analysis projects. Each lesson is designed to incorporate student-generated data to improve student engagement during the lessons and promote conceptual understanding of data sets and data representations. The lessons were originally designed to fit within single 90-minute instruction blocks, except for the three student-led projects which may take more than one 90-minute block to complete. The lessons were developed to align with the New York State Algebra 1 Common Core Learning Standards, which includes a unit of statistics.
