Have your students practice determining if data is discrete or continuous in a fun way. This file includes a tic-tac-toe style game with an answer key. ***Please check out my other tic-tac-toe games on different topics.
Numerical data are DISCRETE if the possible values are isolated points on the number line (usually determined by counting); CONTINUOUS: if the set forms an entire interval on the number line or a range of values (usually determined by making measurements)
This is a 33 page Smartboard file explaining the difference between Discrete and Continuous. Students learn that Discrete data is counted and that Continuous data is measured. Students practice by seeing short situations and by looking at the coordinate plane.
