Types of Data

October 18, 2018

Here’s a simple resource I’ve created that I like. It was based on a tweet I sent asking for examples of discrete data that aren’t integers and aren’t shoe sizes.

I’ve combined those suggestions along with some continuous and qualitative types (both of which are far easier to come up with!) and made them into a tick sheet. Students work collaboratively on the first set of examples, then, after going through those answers together, there’s another set for them to have a go at by themselves.

  1. Did you settle on whether your students are supposed to view measurements taken by humans in the real world like my height (distance, time) as discrete or continuous?
