## 6.SP.A.1

18 questions1 skill

Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.

## 6.SP.A.2

84 questions3 skills

Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.

## 6.SP.A.3

31 questions2 skills

Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.
