Mean, Median, Mode, Range Math Activity


Looking for a fun and collaborative way to practice calculating the measure of center? Specifically, mean, median, mode, and range of a data set? You've found it.

Why you'll love this

Domino Effect is a collaborative game where groups of 3 - 4 students work together to find the solution to the current problem — which reveals the next problem. Students solve 16 problems per game. If the solution to the last problem matches the answer on the starting card, the team has correctly completed the activity!

This includes 2 difficulty levels of the game, with 32 problems in total.

What math skills does it practice?

The activity includes two difficulty levels of the following:

  • Level 1: consists of calculating mean, median, mode, or range when given a set of whole numbers. (For example: Find the median of this data set).

  • Level 2: consists of finding the missing number when given mean, median, mode, and range or consists of working with decimals to find mean, median, mode and range. (For example: Given that the mean is 26, what is the missing number in the data set below?).

This activity includes two difficulty levels so that you can differentiate students, or play twice back-to-back to practice.
