Averages using the Median and Mode

Students learn about averages using the median and mode.  As learning progresses they use the averages to compare sets of data.
Differentiated Learning Objectives

  • Most students should be able to calculate the median and mode from a set of data
  • Some students should be able to calculate the median and mode from a set of data and recognise the limitations of each average.
