In this unit, students will learn how they can use averages and range to represent data. They will start by organising data into two way tables, frequency tables (including grouped frequency tables) and stem and leaf diagrams. They will then look at using these tables (and lists of numbers) to calculate range, mode, median and mean, understanding the uses and value of each type of average.
