QuizBus: Dealing with Data will help students in Grades 4-8 have practice with collecting data, presenting it in an understandable fashion, analyzing the data through graphing, identifying ways data can be distorted and looking at both arithmetic and geometric probability (area models). This multimedia package contains five videos, a teacher guide and a Web site, http://WesternReservePublicMedia.org/quizbus. QuizBus: Dealing with Data is patterned loosely after the TV program “Cash Cab.” The actual quiz show takes place in a school bus. At the start of the program, the bus arrives at a school and agents exit it in search of “contestants” — four math teachers. The contestants are led from the classroom to the QuizBus, which has an on-camera quiz master and an announcer/sidekick, the bus driver. The game begins on the bus, where the quiz show host asks a preliminary question or poses a problem that each of the four contestants tries to answer.
