Describe the Distribution

Lyrics © Mary McLellan
may sing to the tune of Fun's"We Are Young"

Give me a second now
I need to get my words straight
I need to learn the vocab that is all about the data’s shape
Uniformed, symmetrical, skewed to the right and the left
Will there be an outlier or is the shape regular
I know I then choose the center, though…
Do I pick mean or median?
So that I don’t get confused the spread that I choose to use is IQR or standard deviation

When the AP test approaches and I want to get a 5, I know what to do:
Describe the distribution
Shape and outliers
Center and spread
Describe the distribution
Shape and outliers
Center and spread
When the AP test approaches and I want to get a 5, this song will help me to thrive
