              Using the Range

              The majority of the lesson is based around using the range to compare data sets in addition to an average.  Emphasis is placed on students justifying their data set comparisons using the correct vocabulary in the right context.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the range from a set of data.
              • Most students should be able to compare the consistency of two or more data sets using the range.
              • Some students should be able to compare two more data sets using an average and range
