Product Description
Includes decimal answers that require rounding to the nearest hundredth!

The Mean Average Deviation is a pretty new concept in most 6th grade classrooms. My students needed opportunities to see when this was a useful tool outside of the math homework and test questions. I created this product as a way to make the MAD a bit more kid-friendly and to convince them that this has use in the real world!

These cards are perfect for whole class, small groups, reteaching, reviewing, test prep, extra credit, centers, additional practice, resource groups, and more! Because of the varying nature of the questions, this set of task cards isn't designed for games like "Scoot." Some questions require more calculation and justifying than others.

Break Down of Question Types:
5 MAD Calculation + explaining what the MAD tells us in that situation
1 absolute deviation (which data point is farthest from the mean?)
4 MAD comparisons - students compare two sets of data and their MAD to determine who is closer, on average, to the mean. Some of these questions have a targeted mean to use. For example, a basketball team has a target goal of each player making 7.25 shots per game. The coach wants to see how two players' stats stand against the goal average.

Two of the questions are definitely designed with a challenge in mind. These cards are GREAT for differentiation.

An answer key and 2 different versions of student response sheets are included.
