These sites deal with statistical outliers. They explore how to detect outliers in your data, how to handle these outliers, and how outliers influence correlational analysis. Resources include articles, student activities and videos. A link to eThemes Resource: Math: Statistics is included.
This activity uses student's own data to introduce bivariate relationships using hand size to predict height. In this lesson students will identify outlying causes and determine the effect of the outlying cases.
In this learning activity, students will observe how the correlation coefficient changes when outlier points are added. In addition, the assignment provides insight about outliers and their effect on correlation. This activity will show exactly how outliers numerically change the correlation value and to what degree
These sites focus on basic statistics analysis including descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. There are information on data collection, data analysis, and data interpretation. Includes simulations, exercises, and lesson plans. There are links to eThemes resource on Statistics for Graphing and Probability.
