Summarize and describe statistical distribution using quantitative measures of center (median and mean) and variability (range).
Understand that different strategies are used for finding the median of an even and an odd set of items.
Understand that the mean is the sum of the items divided by the number of items.
Understand that the mode is the number(s) that occur most often.
Understand that range is the difference between the lowest and highest values of a data set.
Find the mean, median, and mode for the same data set.
Data, Mean, Median, Mode, Range, Average
Practiced finding the mean, median, mode, and range of data sets.
Created data sets using various sides dice.
Techniques and Formulas
