A note to the teacher

This resource is for teaching shapes of distributions, analyzing the use of the mean versus the median, and deciphering which among the two is higher based on the shape of the distribution.

Note: For scavenger hunt simply print slides and post them around the room. Tell students to match letters with numbers (each characteristic has at least 2 answers). Turning it into a competition works well, putting the students in pairs and hiding the slides in creative places also makes it more exciting. Review the answers using the slides in the presentation and reveal the answers.
