6th Grade Math Review: Day 12
Updated: Apr 30, 2020
In yesterday's post we reviewed spent quite a bit of time on learning different ways to describe data. If you missed the live stream with the answers, you can watch it here. Today we finish the entire 12-day review with another look at Reporting Category 4 - Data Analysis and Personal Financial Literacy. Remember that on Day 5 of the review we look at Personal Financial Literacy - College and Earning Levels.
This type of data representation is new for 6th graders. Sometimes called box-and-whisker plots, box plots are helpful for viewing the interquartile range, something learned yesterday. Here's a video dedicated just to making box plots.
With that reminder, why not try out this practice problem?
Line Plots and Stem-and-Leaf Plots
6th graders should be familiar with both dot plots, which they first learned about in 3rd grade, and stem-and-leaf plots, which they first learned about in 4th grade. Here's a refresher video about interpreting data from these two types of graphs.
Now you can try your luck with this STAAR released test question.
Personal Financial Literacy - Credit and Debit Cards
Finally, 6th graders are asked to learn quite a bit about debit and credit cards, especially how interest rates and fees affect credit card debt. Here's an explanation video to help with this concept.
Here's a practice problem that you can use to test your skill.
In addition to debit and credit cards, students in 6th grade also learn about checking accounts and how to balance a checkbook register.
Correct Answers Tonight (4/30/20) at 8:00 pm (CDT), I'll live stream from my YouTube channel to go over the answers to these three practice problems. Make sure you've already worked them out ahead of time. I can answer questions you might have in the stream chat and I'll put the recording on my channel and in this post for anyone that couldn't watch it live.
