This sequence of lessons explores students' ability to find the mean, median, mode and range from given data, working collaboratively. The lessons slowly increase in difficulty, through the introduction of new terms and increasing task complexity. The lessons are detailed with accompanying resources (PowerPoint, prompt sheet).
