Next week I begin teaching range, mean, median, and mode. This is so hard to teach. Does anyone have fun activities or helpful hints they would be willing to share. Thank a lot!

make posters for each one to hang on the wall ...they can have definitions and explain the steps of each oone...then students can refer to the posters when they have difficulties....i would calculate the average age for the class......throw in your own age to spice it up a little.....

if you don't have any food allergies. Then the kids can use the candy as manipulatives. The maximum amount of a color, the minimum amount, etc.

Happy Halloween!

Use the book Rikki Tikki Tembo and then have them use post its for their names. Make a line plot for the most letters in their names to the least letters in their name. Post the post its on the board. The largest plot is the mode, the range is the difference between the greatest amount of letters and the least amount of letters. It is a great visual and the kids really love the book!

Here's a cute little saying for the kids to remember mean:
Mean means average, add them, then divide. If you say it fast its catchy.
