This is a reference card for students to use when working with Mean, Median, & Mode.
I use these cards as rewards, and students collect them throughout the year.
Mean’s like the Robin Hood
of numbers. It steals from the
rich and gives to the poor,
balancing everyone out.
Mode is the super trendy,
most fashionable number
that shows up the most.
Put your numbers in order from
smallest to largest.
The median is the one in the
middle, or the mean of the
middle two, if the set is even.
How to assemble:
-Print on cardstock.
-Separate the group of 3 cards from the individual card at the bottom. Don't cut too close to the edge of the cards yet, having some extra white space makes glueing easier.
-Fold the cards in half.
-Glue the cards together. Make sure your glue goes all the way to the edge of the cards, otherwise they will peel apart. Stick glue is okay, spray adhesive is better.
-I like to laminate my cards at this point.
-Cut the cards out using a paper cutter.
-If you want to get really fancy, go to Hobby Lobby and buy a corner cutter that will smooth out your corners. This makes them look like real playing cards. 6th graders love to volunteer to do this job.
