#### 6.SP.A.3

Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number

#### 6.SP.B.5

Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:

#### 6.SP.B.5.C
