Grade level: Grade 6 General Education                              Content: Mean, Median, Mode, and Range
Lesson: Measures of Central Tendency

Next Generation Sunshine State Standards/Benchmarks: MA.6.S.6.1; learn the measures of central
tendency (mean, median, mode, and range) for specific data.

Lesson Objective: By the end of the lesson, the students will be able to determine the mean, median, mode, and
range of a given set of numbers with 85% accuracy or higher.

Alternative outcomes/objectives: Once the lesson is complete students will be able to find the central
tendency of a group of numbers. The will be able to define the terminology of central tendency. Students will
understand the concept of determining the highest and lowest numbers in a given set.

Prior Knowledge/Preskills: In order for students to be as successful in learning central tendancy they need to
be fluent in addition and division. They need to understand number order and what is highest to lowest.

Materials:
Student Needs
Pencil and eraser
Notebook paper
Number line
Calculator
Teacher Needs
White board and dry erase markers
Markers
Strips of construction paper
Cube with pockets for inserts
File folder games focusing on measures of central tendency

Motivation:
A video will be shown from: http://www.onlinemathlearning.com/mode-mean-median.html
It will give a real-life application of using measure of central tendency.
A list of numbers will be on the board and I will ask the student to figure out the average and what

-Expectations
Over a period of 4 days the students will learn the measures of central tendency and when to use it. On
fifth day the students will combine the knowledge that they have learned and practice all of the measures
of central tendency. They will take notes on each of the lessons. They will participate in games and
group instruction.

-Rationale: The students will have the opportunity to work together with their peers. They will learn
the skills using various learning strategies. By working with peers and using varying learning styles
the student have *****

Have you ever watched basketball or football and ever wonder how the players get their average scores?
What about your grades, think, how do you think that teachers figure your report card grades with so
many assignments?
