Overarching Essential Questions

 

“When is simplification helpful?   When is simplification harmful?”

 

 

“What can patterns reveal?”

“In what ways does a model illuminate?   In what ways can a model be distorted?”

“How does what we measure influence how we measure?”

“How much or how many is enough? AND How likely is it?”

“How can what we learned this year impact how we think?”

 

 

 

 

      

Data analysis and graphs should be embedded throughout all of the units!

      

Process standards are addressed throughout the year!

 

 

Attention Parents:
