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. of two dice (Pages 3-4) - Students find the sum of two dice numbered 1-6
2. of two dice (Pages 5-6) - Students find the product of two dice numbered 1-6
3. Directions are (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.)
