  • DENVER Student worksheet standard deviation revised 4-9-13.pdf (464.7 kB)
  • Standard Deviation Denver 2013 April 12 (4).pdf (761.1 kB)

  • Discover a conceptual approach to calculate the mean and standard deviation by using color tiles. We will use a hands-on approach to create a concrete model of each step in calculating the standard deviation. We then discuss how these physical representations relate to the handwritten algorithms.
