A statistical question is different from other questions because it can be answered using data that may vary or change. If a question can be answered by a single number or answer, then it is not a statistical question. This lesson begins by describing a statistical distribution, and providing examples of questions that are and are not statistical questions. Examples of several types of graph shapes are shown. The lesson contains an activity where students create a statistical question and collect data to answer it for hands on practice.
