Range refers to the distance “Between”.
The Range refers to the distance between the highest and lowest value within a set of
numbers.
Strategy: Order your data from greatest to least.
Mean means “Average”.
Mean = the average of a group of numbers.
Strategy: Add all numbers then divide by the number of entries.
Median means is in the “Middle”.
Strategy: Order the numbers from least to greatest.
Mode represents the most “Popular”
The Mode is the number that appears the most frequently within a set of number.
Strategy: What number do you see the most often?
1. Time each member of your group to find out
how long it takes to eat one candy corn. DO
and seconds.
2. Find the range of the times.
3. Find the median of the times.
4. Find the mode of the times, if there is one.
5. Find the mean of the times.
6. Make a stem and leaf plot to represent your
data.
The top number the Numerator, it is the
number of parts you have.
The bottom number the Denominator, it is the
number of parts the whole is divided into.
Hint:
Denominator- “down”-ominator
