Measures of central tendency: Mean, Median, Mode, Range 3-5-12 to 3-9-12

Saturday, March 3, 2012


This week we will be working with calculating the measures of central tendency to analyze data which includes: Mean, Median, Mode, and Range.

Enjoy this free game from BBC!
BBC Mean Median Mode Range Game 


Our test will be Friday! This is our last NEW skill of the year! 

Quiz your kids by these key words!
Mean-->Average
Median-->Middle
Mode-->Most
Range-->High-Low

****You can also take a deck of cards to practice your mean, median, mode, and range. This is a great way to practice a variety of numbers without a worksheet! Jokers count as wild kids pick number. Face cards are 10. Ace can be 1 or 11. ****

Next week, begins our 5th Grade math review for the TCAP!!
Some of the sites we will be using to go along with our lessons include some more from Study Zone

Take a look at some of these great resources!
