There is a Difference: Histograms vs. Bar Graphs

In this statistics lesson plan, students gather information using the Internet about party affiliation and age at time of inauguration of current and past Presidents in order to construct a bar graph and a histogram. Once all of the data is collected students work together to complete the appropriate data displays and compare and contrast their findings. The lesson plan includes questions for reflection and discussion, student activity sheet, answer key, and an assessment option activity sheet and answer key.
