__A Typical Math Student Lesson Plan__

Students will find the mean, median,
mode, minimum, maximum, and lower and upper quartile of
a set of data. They will make a histogram and a
box-and-whisker plot for the data. This will first be
performed by hand, then with the use of Microsoft
Excel. The histograms and box-and-whisker plots from
Excel will be imported into a PowerPoint presentation.
This lesson requires the Analysis ToolPak to be
installed in Excel.
