Graphing the Mean Student takes your students through an experience that will led to a group presentation on working out the average from information they collect.
They will compose questions, collect and collate data, determine the ‘mean’, show the data in various graphs and design a poster to present the ‘mean student’ as a student in their room.

A summary of what is included
Slide 1 – Outlines what you will cover in the unit plus extension tasks.
Slide 2 – How mean are you? A slide to discuss and prepare your students for what is the mean and how to work it out.
Slide 3 – The mean is the average – used for discussion with your grade and included an example to share and work out.
Slide 4 – Examples of what the finished group task could look like. I have included photos form what my grade did and these can be used to give ideas and motivate your grade as to what theirs may look like.
Slide 5 – A template to use for the mean student if you want uniformity. Attach your graphs to the sides and then display.
Slide 6 – Work out the missing data.
Slide 7 – Now it is your turn – this is your task. In groups of four devise questions and collect data from your grade. Use this data to work out the mean and then make graphs.
Slides 8/11 – Types of graphs to use – pictographs, bar graphs, histograms, dot plots, stem and leaf plots.
Slide 12/14 – Examples of ways to collect data – pen and paper version and ways to use google sheets or excel.
