This Measures of Center and Variation lesson plan also includes:
In groups, mathematicians make paper strip models of their pencil lengths, then use the data to find the centers of measure. They also use a Cuisenaire® rod set and Unifix® cubes to determine mean and median. Finally, they use an interactive, Plop It!, online to further investigate these concepts.
