## Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning

CAUSEWeb really does put out some great activities for teaching Introductory Statistics, such as Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning.  In fact, they have an entire Statistics Activity Webinar Series that they do regularly.  I was told that this particular activity would easily be modified for the college classroom (where we sometimes don't have as much time).  My modification is below.  The file includes a student instruction sheet, three pages of student 'cards' and three pages of solutions for the instructor.  Enjoy, and make sure to check out the  CAUSEWeb Statistics Activity Webinar Series!

## Composite Figures Diagram

Each group of four students (two teams of two students each) was given two game boards...
