This election pack reviews:
- mean, median, mode and range
-converting fractions to percents
-interpreting the data into a table, circle graph, bar graph and frequency table
This activity starts with students voting as on their own personal ballot, then compiling the totals of the votes on a tally chart before converting to fractions of the total number of votes and eventually a percent. After compiling this data, students will then graphically represent their information in circle graph, frequency table and a bar graph.
Once they have compiled their data, they will then observe and compare to determine the mean, median, mode and range. All of this information will be worked on individual activity sheets (to allow for splitting into separate lessons) and then compiling the information into a flippable mini book including a reflection sheet for students to review their learning as well as extend it to what happens in the real election.
