## Online Math Activity - Finding Median, Mode, and Range

Get ready to stretch those graphing and data muscles with a fun, interactive math lesson from iKnowIt.com! In this online math activity, your students will practice finding median, mode, and range for a data set. Here are a few examples of the types of questions your students may encounter in this digital math game:

• "Find the range of the set of numbers: 88, 94, 90, 66, 75, 87."
• "The table below shows the average total snowfall for several cities in New York throughout the month of January. What is the mode?"
• "Mrs. Gonzalez has a vegetable garden in her backyard. The graph below shows how many of each vegetable plant is in the garden. What is the median number of vegetable plants in Mrs. Gonzalez's garden?"
• "Elsie plays soccer for the Springfield Soccer Club's 10 and under travel team. The line plot below shows the ages of each player on her team. What is the range?"
• "The fourth grade classes went on a field trip to the science museum. Mrs. Maldonado's class had 3 chaperones, Mr. Sweeney's class had 2 chaperones, Mr. Decker's class had 3 chaperones, Mrs. Pentoney's class had 4 chaperones, and Mrs. Varga's class had 3 chaperones. What is the mode?"

As students work though the math problems in this graphing and data activity, they will answer a variety of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions. In addition, students will find plenty of handy tools built into their math lesson interface to help them make the most of their math practice sessions. The hint button is available for students when they get stuck on a question. It will display a pictorial or written clue that will point them in the right direction without giving the answer away. A detailed explanation page pops up on the practice screen when students get an answer wrong. It displays the correct answer accompanied by an easy-to-follow explanation, helping children to learn from their mistakes as they progress through the math activity. The progress-tracker shows students how many questions they have answered so far, while the score-tracker displays how many points they have earned so far for correct responses. Finally, the speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click the button to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This resource is a great tool for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors. All of these features were thoughtfully designed with your class's math practice experience in mind.
