Averages Crossnumber and Bingo Quick View

Averages Crossnumber and Bingo

I made these resources for a job interview over eight years ago and have used them with every KS3 class I have had since. The crossnumber contains a mix of questions on mean, median and mode with an extension question to really make the pupils think. It's a great resource for either a 20 min segment of a lesson or a perfect homework sheet. It has self assessment built into by the nature of the exercise - the crossnumber will only work if all the 'across' and 'down' questions are answered correctly. The 'Average Bingo' is great plenary. Each student must draw a 5 by 5 grid in their exercise book and randomly place the numbers 1 to 25 in each box. You then read out the questions in a random order (remember to mark of the questions you have asked). The pupils then find the answer on their grid and cross it out. The first pupil to get a row wins. This resource can be used multiple times as each pupils grid is unique. I have attached two versions of the questions.

A "treasure hunt" activity on averages

Two versions (with/without frequency tables) of a treasure hunt activity for a class to attempt individually or in groups. There are 24 questions, numbered from 1 to 24. Each group chooses a number from 1 to 24 at random (or you can assign them a start number), and this is the number of the first question they should attempt - this should be written in the top-left circle on their answer grid. Their answer to their first question should be a whole number from 1 to 24 - this should be written in the next circle on their grid and this is the number of the next question they should attempt. e.g. if a group starts on Q6 and they think the answer to Q6 is 13 then after Q6 they should attempt Q13 (and they should have 6 -> 13 on their answer grid). If they answer the questions correctly they end up with the same chain of answers as on the solution, if they make a mistake they will repeat an earlier question and at that point you can decide how much help to give them sorting out their error(s). This activity works best if you can stick the 24 questions around a large classroom or sports hall so the groups have to run around to find their next question. All the classes I've done these activities with have loved them.

Averages (Math Art- Easter Special)

Math Art combines the fun of colouring and the consolidation of mathematical skills. Ideal as a plenary activity to determine what learning has taken place, alternatively use to determine pupils prior knowledge to a topic and of course great for revision. In this math art activity pupils need to find the mode, median and range for a list of numbers. Pupils then shade all the squares with those answers in the colour stated. As a result pupils will have a picture of a decorative Easter egg. This resource comes complete with instructions and full solutions.

Averages!Quick View


Everything you need to teach finding averages in KS3 and 4! Here are some of my favourite lessons for teaching finding and comparing averages. This is including finding and comparing mode, median, mean and range from a list of data, from a stem and leaf diagram and from a frequency table! All lessons contain: 5 a day starter, learning objectives with progress tick sheet, Fully animated and clear examples, Differentiated, colour-coordinated questions WITH answers. Lesson 1: Mode, Median, Mean and range. Explanation and clear examples of finding each average. Includes individual questions to complete, as well as activities which can be used as extension challenges or paired work, such as odd one out and working backwards to find the numbers which gives you that average. Lesson 2: Stem and Leaf diagrams. Whole class introduction to creating and using Stem and Leaf diagrams using class info for everyone to be involved. Short exercise to ensure students can create stem and leaf diagrams correctly. Clear examples on how to find averages on the stem and leaf diagram with individual questions. Extension questions comparing averages from a dual stem and leaf diagram. Lesson 3: Averages from a frequency table. Clear, well paced examples for the whole class to go through, with time for students to work through one average before moving onto the next. Finishing with two individual frequency tables to ensure progress and full understanding. Worksheet included. Lesson 4: FREE BONUS LESSON! Comparing data. This is a lesson I found on TES and loved to finish off finding averages. I have adapted it slightly so feel free to do the same, but I couldn't leave it off as I think its a great group work lesson to finish the topic, or even make display work from! Explanation of Primary and Secondary data, then given data from Olympians to compare to find who should be on the GB team. Great way for students to work together and practice answering questions with full sentences. These are all my favourite lessons from the averages topic and I hope you enjoy them too! If you like them or think I could improve them in anyway, please rate or comment! Thanks =]
