This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 8, Grade 6. In this activity, students calculate the mean of a data set and interpret it in the context of the given situation. The first data set students see here has a dozen values, discouraging students from redistributing the values incrementally and encouraging them to use a more efficient method. In the second question, students analyze the values in data sets and use the structure to decide whether or not it makes sense that a given mean would match the data set.
