KS3 Maths - Mean, Median and Mode

Description

Wendy Fortescue-Hubbard, the TES' Mathagony Aunt explores how useful the idea of average house price is and asks which average it refers to.

Wendy visits two locations in south-west London, Colliers Wood and Wimbledon with a local estate agent. She discovers why the house prices are so different and which averages are useful to him.

Students at Vyners School do their own research on the internet on house prices around the country and decide which of the three averages is the best to use.

Key points of the programme:

  • Discovering the difference between mean, median and mode
  • Useful software for teaching maths
  • Putting maths into practice outside the classroom
