Students learn to calculate the median and mode averages from data presented as a list.
As learning progresses, they begin to consider when to use each average depending on the type of data available.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to calculate the median from a discrete data set.
- Most students should be able to calculate the mode from a discrete data set.
- Some students should be able to use the range, median and mode to compare data distributions.
