M🎃an treats/child? M🎃dian?

COREFLECTIONS

(1) This question fits where in Common Core? Grade levels?

(2) What questions could you ask before calculation to develop number sense/conceptual thinking?

Some ideas...

Why is this sometimes referred to as a frequency table?

OR

Which is easier to determine -- mean or median? OR

If frequency = 4 kids for all # of treats, mean = ? Mental Math!!

OR

Explain to your partner why mean > median.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Basically mean is easy to find but for even numbers median is difficult little bit just select middle two values and add them and divide it by 2 the given answer is median.
