Product Description

Check out this interactive Measure of Central Tendency activity! Students get the chance to practice their math skills while determining Mean, Median, Mode, and Range. In pairs, students will roll dice, then use the data they collect as a class to create a stem and leaf diagram, dot plot, and find measures of central tendency.

Concepts Covered in this activity:

Data Collection              Mean               Central Tendency

Stem and Leaf                Median            Cluster

Dot plot graph                Mode               Peaks

Percentages                    Range             Gaps

I have included 3 copies of this activity.

1. Sum of two dice (Pages 3-4) - Students find the sum of two dice numbered 1-6

2. Product of two dice (Pages 5-6) - Students find the product of two dice numbered 1-6

3. Directions are not specific (Pages 7-8) - Teacher must clarify what operation students use, and can use dice with numbers greater than 6. (If working with integers, one color of di could also represent a negative number.)
