Here you will find another series of progressive worksheets, filled with step-by-step examples, that will help students master the art of analyzing data sets. These worksheets start off with simple problems asking you to calculate the Mean/Median/Mode/Range of a variety of data sets. At first, you’ll probably be able to get by with simple mental math, but eventually you may reach for the calculator.
To calculate the mean, you just add all of the numbers in the set, and the divide by how many numbers are in the set. To find the median, you list the numbers in order from least to greatest, eliminate the lowest and highest numbers, then select the middle number as the median. The mode is the easiest measure to find, it’s the number or numbers that appear the most in the set. The range is the difference between the highest and lowest values in the data set.
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #1 – This is a 10 problem worksheet where you will find the Mean/Median/Mode/Range of different sets of numbers. Only whole numbers are featured, with odd-numbered sets that produce a definite median.
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #2 – This is a 10 problem worksheet where you will find the Mean/Median/Mode/Range of different sets of numbers. On this worksheet, you will only deal with whole numbers. Some of the problems feature even-numbered sets and multiple modes.
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #3 – This is a 10 problem worksheet where you will find the Mean/Median/Mode/Range of different sets of numbers. Some problems require you to find the median between two remaining numbers in an even-numbered set. Mental math should be sufficient for this worksheet and all of the previous worksheets.
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #4 – Time to break out the calculator! This 10 problem worksheet asks you to do some rounding for the mean, and the medians feature some decimals. As usual, there are some step by step examples to guide you along the way.
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #5 – Time to look at some serious decimals. This 10 problem worksheet features some means that need to be rounded from hundredths to tenths. You’ll also have to find the median of data sets like(0.10, 0.2, 0.9, 0.6, 0.8, 0.4),
Mean/Median/Mode/Range Worksheet #6 – My favorite worksheet of the bunch. Challenge your students with data sets like (0.5, 0.05, 0.005. 5, 0.05), where they must add zeroes as decimal-place holders to put the set in order.
