What better way to learn about mean, median, mode and range other than collecting our own authentic data? So we set off to work if pairs and times each other to see who could stand the longest on one foot..with their eyes closed! That was the tricky part..With their eyes open we had some winners who were hard to beat: Asahi and Imogen at over 15 minutes!
Eyes closed was a different story -
the highest was Imogen at 80 seconds.
The Outliers were: Simon, Callum and Imogen.
Student average: 32 seconds
We then collected data from parents.
Their outliers were: Pepe and An's parents at 180 seconds and 300 seconds!
Adult average: 60.2 seconds.
Median: 41 sec
View life from the perspective of a 10 -11 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy.
