Dividing Whole Numbers: 1-Digit Divisors

• Divide by a 1-digit number
• Solve problems, including those that involve finding mean, median, mode, and range for a set of data

Sunshine State Standards

• MA.6.S.6.1

Materials

• Student recording sheet
• Paper and pencil

Student arrangement

• Individual or small group

Present the problem on the student Recording Sheet to your students.

Performance Criteria

• Does the students correctly determine the range, mode, median, and mean?
• Does the student clearly explain how to determine the mean?
• Does the student clearly explain how to determine one or more of the following: range, median, or mode?

Directions

The student populations of five middle schools are listed in the table below.

 SCHOOL POPULATION Valley Middle School 1025 Glendale Middle School 1250 Viking Middle School 935 Hillside Middle School 1160 Springsville Middle School 1250

1. What is the range in population of these middle schools?

2. What is the mode of the student populations listed?

3. What is the median student population of these middle schools?

4. What is the mean student population of these middle schools? Explain how you determined this.

5. Explain how you determined one or more of the following: range, median, or mode.
