Transcript

  • 1. Practice problem
    8f + 6.1 ≥ -14f – 11.9
  • 2. Practice problem
    0.06p – 4 < .05p + 26
  • 3. Deviations from the mean
  • 4. Mean Absolute deviation
  • 5. Measure of spread
    Quantities that measure the degree of variation in data.
    Class 1 Class 2
    _______________ _______________
    RANGE – the difference between the highest and lowest score.
  • 6. Mean absolute deviation
    A measure of spread that shows the difference between these distributions.
    DEVIATION: The difference of each number from the mean
    ABSOLUTE DEVIATION: Absolute value of each number found from the deviation
  • 7. Property of the mean
    “The sum of the deviations of a set of numbers from the mean of a set is 0.”
  • 8. Applying the math
    Table shows the normal mean temperatures in Fahrenheit for each month in San Francisco and Miami.
    A: Calculate the range of mean temperatures for each city.
    B: Use the mean absolute deviation to determine in which city the temperatures are more consistent.
