This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 8, Grade 6. The aim of this activity is to expose the limits of the mean in summarizing a data set that has gaps and values far from the center, and to motivate a need to have another measure of center. Students first use a table of values and a dot plot to estimate a "typical" value for a data set.
