Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

In this lesson plan students must use a frequency chart to describe a set of data, including the mean, median, mode, and range of the data set. The lesson plan includes a pre-assessment, whole class activity, collaborative learning activity, and formative assessment. To be successful at this lesson students will need to be able to interpret the frequency chart for the mean, median, mode, and range, but also be able to fill in a frequency chart with a possible solution when given these data landmarks. Additional resources include the lesson plan in a 26-page PDF, the teacher slides in a 4-slide PowerPoint presentation, and a 16-page PDF guide for teachers and administrators.
