Enjoy your Spring Break.

If you’re up to it, here’s a Spring Break Extra Credit problem:

Due date is 4/4.  Late work will not be accepted.

Use the data from the following problem to:

1.  Create a stem-leaf plot.

2.  Find the mean, median, mode and range of eggs found.

Ms. Jones had an egg hunt for her students before spring break.  Each student found some eggs.  Listed below are the number of eggs each student found.  

(15, 23, 11, 15, 21, 10, 31, 23, 19, 15, 23, 27, 14)

ALL paper/pencil work must be turned in to get credit for your answers, but you can check your work with a calculator, just as you should on your SOL test for these kinds of problems, when the calculator will be available to you.

Mean, Median, Mode and Range Extra credit opportunity.

Below are the number of miles Joey ran at track practice over the last 6 weeks.    Miles:  (38, 30, 24, 17, 23, 30)

>Find the mean, median, mode and range of miles Joey ran over the last 6 weeks.  Remember what I taught you in class.

Mean – “Don’t be mean, make sure everyone gets their fair share“.

Median – The median strip runs down the “_ _ _ _ _ _” of the road.  Think about what to do if you have an even set of data!

Mode – “MO-MO”

Range – Home, Home, Home on the R——-A——-N——-G——-E

Don’t forget what you need to do with the data BEFORE you solve for each!!


Use a calculator to check you paper pencil work.

Homework:  Finish both of the Mode & both of Range questions on the flip side of both notebook pg’s.

>>>Remember to order ALL data 1st.

MOde is the MOst,

Range is the difference between the greatest and least..

Homework:  Median worksheet (front and back).

Remember my warnings.

>Order data 1st crossing them off as you go.

Cross them off in pairs until you find the middle number.

If it is an even set of data you will have two numbers left in the middle.  When that happens, you have to find the mean of the middle 2 numbers(add,  then divide by 2)

Students will finish their Fraction unit test today.  

We will begin the last 9 weeks trying to get caught up from all of the missed instructional time.   Our focus next week will be on mean, median, mode and range along with line graphs and stem-leaf plots.  

Please make every effort to have children here and on time.  

Ask your child if they need supplies replenished(pencils, glue).  Far too many students are coming to class without them.  We have done our best in school to buy supplies for student that have an emergency(forgot my pencil pouch at home), but the students seem to think it is the teachers job to replenish their supplies for them on a daily basis.  That is not the case.  Please stock you children up as soon as possible to limit delays and distractions in class.

Levon’s goal was to study 5 hours for his benchmark test on Friday.   He studied 1 and 1/4 hrs. Monday, 5/6 hrs. Tuesday, and 1 and 7/12 hrs. Wed.  How long does he need to study on Thursday to meet his 5 hour goal?
