Thank you, Amy (Student Teacher) > I think that VA's standards are typical of many states so I have provided info from there.

Below are the standards 6th, 7th and algebra I students: 6.19 The student will describe the mean, median, and mode as measures of central tendency and determine their meaning for a set of data. 7.19 The student will create and solve problems involving the mean, median, mode, and range of a set of data. 7.20 The student will display data, using frequency distributions, line plots, stem-and-leaf plots, box-and-whisker plots, and scatter grams. A.18- The student will compare multiple one-variable data 5 q sets, using statistical techniques that include measures of central tendency, range, stem-and-leaf plots, and box and-whisker graphs.
