Interpreting Measures of Center

Eighth graders use calculators and a hand out to calculate the mean, median, mode, range, and outliers for three sets of data. They select the measure of center they feel best represents the set of data and justify their choice. Students collect information about their favorite music, research to find more data, and analyze the central tendencies for their music. Students create a graph to represent the data.
