What Do Mean and Median Mean?
Students will decide when mean vs median best summarizes data.
Students will use the Mean and Median Machine rather than calculate by hand.
- First, they decide which works better, mean or median when Bill Gates enters the group.
- Next, students calculate the mean and median when Bill Gates has $5000 and $10 000.
- Now, they determine how low their final test score can be to still earn a 90% in a class.
- After revealing that there's no way to not get an A when the median is used, students pick their one data to analyze with mean and median.
