# Mean Average and Range

Students learn how to find the mean average and range.  Building on calculating the mean students compare sets of data using the average and range as a measure of spread.

At the start of the lesson students recap the mean average by comparing totals.  In the main part they learn how to compare the spread of data using the range.  In the plenary they using the range and mean to calculate missing data values.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the mean average and range from a set of data.
• Most students should be able to compare data sets using the mean and range.
• Some students should be able to use the mean and range to calculate unknown data values

#### Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
