#### Averages Problem Solving in Context

(0)
I wanted to bring my maths classroom closer to the real world, and specifically the problems and changes that we face. I wanted a resource that would raise awareness of important issues in society, invite discussion in a maths classroom, and spur action. So these resources place key skills of working with averages in the context of society’s challenges. **Students work with mean, mode, median, and interpretations of these. ** It provides an opportunity to practice problem solving in new contexts, and highlights the power that maths has to quantify issues and help address them. The numbers and statistics are all very close to the real numbers, often rounded to make it easier to work with in a classroom. Feel free to add your own and adjust and help take maths into the world and its challenges!
