              Mean Average from Discrete Data

              Students learn how to calculate the mean average of discrete data using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses students move from a visual understanding of the mean average to using numerical techniques for larger data sets.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the mean average of listed discrete data.
              • Most students should be able to compare discrete data sets using the mean average.
              • Some students should be able to complete data sets when given the mean average

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
