QuestionCommon Core Standard #CCSS Excerpt
16.SP.5a...report the number of observations...
26.SP.5c...giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean)...
36.SP.5c...giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean)...
46.SP.1...recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question...
