Mean Skill – for 5th-8th grade. This is the third and final lesson in the lesson series. Each lesson builds upon the last, and this final installment focuses on mean, median, mode, range, graphing and analyzing. Students test their own skills in a series of trials and use that data just like athletes would to make predictions based on averages then compare players using graphs. This final lesson wraps up the message and mission of showing your students how math learned in class is used in the real world and in a popular and likable past-time like sports in a nice package. So you can show your students "why the will need to know this math" and "how it used in the real world." Lesson three reviews the definitions and methods of calculating mean, median, mode and range and the application of those skills in a given situation. There is an interactive bar graph at the end of the flipchart that can easily be modified to each of your classes.
