Included in Mean Median Mode Magic Packet
Cookie Mean Median Mode and Range Math Activity from Classroom Magic-
Give each group or student a package of mini cookies or several sandwich cookies. Then allow students to complete their cookie data sheet. Hints have been included to help them in finding the mean, median, mode, and range. Since this is a real world problem, students might NOT have a mode. Two versions have been included. The first way has 5 attempts, so when students find median they end up with only one number. The second way is with 6 attempts ,so students will need to average to find the median. Two song lyrics have been included as a bonus. You could take this activity even further by finding the mean, median, mode, and range of the students' averages.
