This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 7, Unit 6, Grade 6. Students describe the center of a distribution by its mean and interpret it as a balance point. Students understand that the mean is a balance point by calculating the distances of the data points from the mean and calling these distances deviations. Students understand that the balance point is where the sum of the distances above the mean is equal to the sum of the distances below the mean.
