How are kids supposed to get excited about finding the mean, median, mode, range, or outliers of a data set? By playing Bingo, that's how!
As stated on the first page of this document, you just distribute the Bingo cards to your students. Have them choose numbers at random from 1 - 60 and write them on the cards. As the teacher, select numbers from the attached list at random. Read the text beside each number, but don't read the actual number itself aloud. If a student has the number on his/her card, the student should make an X on that square. Standard Bingo rules apply. It's that easy!
Common Core Standard 6.SP.B.5 states that students should "Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by" 6.SP.B.5.C "Giving quantitative measures of center and variability , as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern.."
With this simple, fun game, your students will master these standards in no time! Please note that some decimals involve fractions, mixed numbers, or decimals.
