Online Math Activity - Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

Your students will become experts on mean, median, mode, and range in this fifth-grade math practice activity! In this fun and engaging math lesson, children will be asked questions about range, mean, median, and mode for a variety of data sets. Questions are accompanied by colorful tables, presented as word problems, or given as a set of data. Upon completion of this fifth-grade math lesson, students will be able to determine mean, median, mode, and range.

This lesson is challenging and fun, presenting data in a variety of formats to give students extra practice. Your students may be asked to find the mean of the following set of numbers: 26.47, 43.8, 69.31, and 98.3. They may be asked a question that accompanies data in a table, such as: "The table below shows the length of several lakes located in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. What is the mode?" or "In 2017, the leading countries for recycling were Austria, Germany, South Korea, Switzerland, and Wales. The graph below shows the recycling rates for each country. What is the mean?" Or, students may be given a word problem like this one: "Three of the fastest roller coasters in the world are located in adventure parks throughout the United States. The top speed for each of these roller coasters is 128 miles per hour, 120 miles per hour, and 100 miles per hour. What is the mean?" As evidenced by these questions, students will be challenged by a variety of data sets.

If students have trouble answering any of the questions in this fifth-grade math lesson, they can click on the "Hint" button for a little extra help. They will be shown a relevant written or pictorial clue that will help them with the first step. When students answer incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the correct answer, along with a step-by-step tutorial for how to obtain it. These features help students maximize their understanding of the concept as they move through the lesson.

You will also find this mean, median, mode, and range lesson to be equipped with other features that help students make the most out of their math practice time. For example, a progress-tracker lets students know how far they've come in the lesson, and a score-tracker tells them how many questions they have answered correctly thus far. A speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature; when students click on it, the question will be read out loud to them in a clear voice.
