How fast can you go?

?

How fast can you go? Drag the terms to the appropriate definition. When you get it correct, it will dissapear from the list. If it is not correct, it will not stick to the definition and will float back to the list. The timer will start when you begin.

unimodal
Quartiles
outliers
multimodal
measures of dispersion
Ranking
bimodal
range
measures of central tendency
mean
midpoint
bell-shaped
Symmetry/skewness & Peakedness (modality)
mode
median
midrange
variance
deviation from the mean
standard deviation
found by adding all the values together and dividing by the sample size
the middle value when arranged in ascending or descending order
one mode
distributions that are both unimodal and symmetric
the average of the squares of the deviations from the mean
the difference between the data item and the mean
the value that occurs most often
mean, median, mode,
more than one mode
mean of the smallest and largest values
the process of assigning ranks to a set of data
ranking that divides the data set into 4 groups
When describing the shape of a distribution, we should consider
The center of the distribution is its—the value that divides the distribution so that approximately half the observations take smaller values, and approximately half the observations take larger values.
difference the greatest and least values
two modes
these values vary significantly from the other values and have more of an effect on the mean than it does on the median
the square root of the variance
used to quantify how much the data is spread out (range, variance, standard deviation)
