III. Developmental Activity


a. Pre – Activity
i. Prayer
ii. Checking Attendance
iii. Motivation
The teacher will begin the session with a recall of learnings from the first
lesson:

 data are facts (counts, measurements, or opinions) collected to answer statistical


questions
 data varies across subjects, and they may show up more than once
 Statistics is a science that studies data,
iv. Presentation
Our lesson will be all about collecting and analyzing data. The teacher will enumerate the
ways on how to summarize the information being collected: histograms. Bar charts, tables,
dot plot, pictograms and numerical data (mean, mode, median).
b. Activity Proper

The teacher will divide the students into groups of five, and ask the groups to submit Activity
Sheets Number 1-02. The objective of the activity is to help determine which fruit is the class
favorite among the four fruits banana, watermelon, mango and pineapple. In the Activity Sheet, ask
each student in each group to rank the four fruits banana, mango, pineapple and watermelon
according to order of preference: 1 is the most preferred fruit, and 4 is the least preferred.
Data Exploration: Summarizing the Data of Activity Sheet 1-02 and Interpreting the Results
The teacher will show a copy of the Class Recording Sheet 1-02 to students using Manila paper.
Ask students whether the data presented on the data recording sheet answers the question about
which fruit is the favorite. If the response is positive, ask which fruit is the favorite and which is
least favorite. Be sure to ask what they based their responses on.
One possible method is to take the sum of the responses (lowest sum = favorite, highest sum
= least favorite).
Another method of describing the (“categorical”) data is by using a picture graph. A picture
graph refers to a graph where an object is used to represent one person on a graph. The picture
graph is a variation on the dotplot and bar graph. Students can also make a picture graph of the least
favorite fruit.
Still another method is to use a bar graph. Students should construct a bar graph for each fruit
and use it to compare the distributions.
The teacher will facilitate a discussion about which fruit is most/least favorite, using the recorded
data to help answer the questions. Are there natural groupings among the four fruits? Ask students
to describe any potentially meaningful patterns. There should be a discussion about how to best
interpret the data.
Some students might think that the best way to determine the favorite fruit is to see which one
had the most scores of 1. The teacher should use the word “mode” to describe the fruit that has the
most scores of 1. Students should recognize that this fruit has the highest bar on a bar graph.
You might ask for some disadvantages of using the mode to determine the class favorite. For
example, this doesn’t take into account that the first choice of most students may also be the least
favorite of many classmates.
Another approach to determine the class favorite is to use the median. Although the data in this
set is categorical, it can be placed in order numerically from most to least favorite. The median
score for each candy is determined by the middle number in the data set if there is an odd number of
data points, and by the average of the two middle numbers if there is an even number of data points.
Other students might think that the sum of scores should determine the class favorite. An
advantage of this approach is that all scores would be used to determine the favorite.
Ask students to show their first choices (favorite) and last choices (least favored) in a pie chart.

KEY POINTS

 There are various ways to summarize and examine data :


o Graphs (pictographs, bar graphs)
o Summary numbers (median, mode)
 There is no unique way to determine the “class favorite” fruit
o Analysis depends on methodology

c. Analysis. How did you make or answer your activity?

d. Abstraction. What are the ways on how to summarized or analyze the collected data?
e. Application. Site real – life situations where data needs to be analyze and interpret in
order to have best choices in decision – making.

IV. Evaluation

1. Lina’s class rated the fruits banana, mango, pineapple watermelon from 1 to 4 (with 1 being the
most favored fruit, and 4 being the least favored) Her class’ data is recorded in the chart below.

Use the approaches below to determine the class favorite.


(a) Find the fruit that was selected as favorite (ranked with a 1) the most often.
Represent this data in a picture graph (or dotplot). Which fruit would represent the class
favorite if this method were used to determine the favorite?

(b) Find the fruit that was selected as least favorite (ranked with a 4) the most often.
Represent this data in a picture graph (or dotplot). Which fruit would represent the least
favorite of the class if this method were used to determine the least favorite?

(c) Find the sum of the scores of the rankings. Which fruit would represent the favorite
if the sum of the class scores was used to determine the favorite? Which fruit would be
the least favorite using this method?

(d) Find the median score of each type of fruit. Which fruit would represent the favorite
if the median was used to determine the favorite? Which fruit would represent the least
favorite if the median was used to determine the favorite?

V. Assignment

(Draw a bar graph of the score distribution for each fruit. Which fruit do you think
would represent the favorite if you use the bar graphs to compare them? Describe the shape of
each distribution in the bar graphs in the previous exercise.
Answers:
(a) Banana was selected as the favorite the most often.

HOMEWORK

1. Inform students that in the next lesson, groups will be recording heights and weights of
students in each group. Thus, each group must assign someone to bring at least one tape
measure, and preferably, a weighing scale. If weighing scales can not be brought, each group
must go to the clinic before class begins, and take two records of their weights. If tape measures
can also not be brought to class, each group must also get two measurements of their heights
(with the rulers metric, attachment to Lesson 1-03), or with measuring devices in the clinic.
2. On page 2 of Big Picture: Number Crunching, an infographic of data taken from the gov.uk

Website was displayed. The figures related to the number of drivers killed or seriously
injured in Great Britain in 2011 and in the period 2005-2009.
