The Name Thing


Even though my 7th grade kiddos have had mean, median, mode, and range, we can add it to the list of things that get purged from a middle school brain! When we started working with data and misleading graphs it was so obvious that we needed to review this little standard before we could move on. According to Pinterest the thing to do is how much your name is worth. Here is the organizer, letters and a key with what each letter was worth. I just did A=1, B=2, etc. The kids loved it and seeing whose name was the biggest mean.


There are all kinds of extensions that could be done with this activity, finding the mean of everyone's name, the range...you see that rabbit hole! I just needed a quick review and this was great for that.
