That’s a RAP

Today in maths we were exploring mean, mode, median and range by playing Mario Kart and some other online games. We watched a video rap about these data terms and decided to write our own rap.

The lesson went really well with most of the boys make great connections to the data and how to calculate these data scores.

Here is the boys rap

To the tune of ‘Smoke on the water’

Mode, mode, mode …what is the mode? What is the mode of data?

To get the mode, you just have to look, to see what happens most often!

Median, Median, Median, Median, Median, Median, Median, Median, Median… Median.
It’s in the middle, it’s in the middle, it’s in the middle of data!

Mean, mean, mean, mean, mean, mean, mean – mean is the average number.
Add ’em up, divide by the set then you get the MEAN number!

Range, range, range…range, range, range, range – you get the range by subtraction.
Find the biggest, the biggest number, then subtract the smallest.
