Find and interpret the mode of a set of data.

What did you find out?

What evidence do you have to support your conclusions?

Are your results what you expected or were there any surprises?

Rob runs 100 metres ten times.

These are his times in seconds.

What is his mean (average) time?

[Give children the test scores for two different classes.]

Which class do you think has done the best overall?

I can work out different types of average. (L5)

Would you use the mode, median or mean to describe these test scores?

Look at this data set.

Work out the mode, range, median and mean.

One more item of data is added to the data set [e.g. a temperature of 24 ºC when the rest of the temperatures were all between 8 ºC and 14 ºC].

Which average do you think will be most affected by this extra result?

Which gives the most sensible average now?

I can solve problems using mode, range, median and mean. (L5)

Here is a bar chart showing rainfall. Kim says:

'The dotted line on the chart shows the mean rainfall for the four months.'

Use the chart to explain why Kim cannot be correct.

What is the mean rainfall for the four months?

Write a different number in each of these boxes so that the mean of the three numbers is 9.

□ □ □

Write a number in each of these boxes so that the mode of the five numbers is 11.

□ □ □ □ □

I can use the different averages to solve problems. (L5)
