Instructional Time: 45 minutes on Day 3, 30 minutes on Day 4
Students will be placed in groups of 4, and will receive a set of data showing the number of people who rode the Transcontinental Railroad to California in its first year of service. The riders will be identified by their home state. Each group will then be asked to create a graph showing its data, and recording the median, mode, and any outliers.
