In this activity, you will
be calculating the mean and standard deviation of
teacher salaries data for 3 different regions located in the United States.
The standard deviation will tell us how far to the right or the left the teacher
salaries are from the mean in the 3 different regions. Using the data set in Excel, calculate the mean, median, and mode for the entire data set including the 3 separate regions. Then, calculate the standard deviation for the entire data set and the 3 different regions. 1. Comparing the 3 different regions, In which region would a teacher want to work in based on the mean value?
