Water Sports Survey is a task developed for sixth grade students working on percents and interpretations of statistics. Students are given a table that displays two sets of data. Students must critique an interpretation made by a student. The interpretation focuses on a common misunderstanding made when looking at statistics: students often neglect to think about the whole, and instead automatically think that a larger percent means more people. Students must agree or disagree with the interpretation and justify the answer.
