616- Finding the Mean: Not Just an Application of Long Division

Saturday, April 16, 2011: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
124 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Robin O'Dell

Participants learn three hands-on approaches to finding the mean of small data sets. Leveling the data interpretation derives the familiar formula, whereas variations of the balance point interpretation develop properties of the mean. Come see how see-saws, number lines, and blocks help your students make sense of the mean.
