Mean median mode and range

Activity group scores for air rifles:
Median:0,1,1,14,21,21,23,23,30,35 middle number is 21
Mean:11adding it all together it equals 179
 A median is putting them in Oder and getting the middle number
A mean is adding all the numbers together and dividing it by how ever many numbers there are
A mode is the numbers that occur the most. If there is none of the sme number there is no mode

Clay day!!!!!!!!

Today throughout the whole school there was a clay day! Ray who is now a clay artist came in today.So let me tell you about the process of making miniature figures out of clay.We each got a liittle bit of clay and we put lines though it to make four lines on it so it made 5 little pieces. Then we cut one piece of clay to make four pieces left. We wrapped up those four pieces in news paper quickly so they don't dry and started making our amazing miniature figures!!!! Then once we finished the first miniature figure we made another one. This is some of the miniature figures that I made with the clay. My favourite miniature figures are at school. They were a train and an elephant.
tip:use vinegar to stick together broken pieces like I had to do
   1:teddy bear  2:spaghetti bolognese 3:cup 4:pen and paper 5: shopping basket 6:rock

I recommend using clay. It's fun!!!!

Rifle shooting data

WALT calculate the mean, median, mode and range for a set of data.
TASK Elly and Troy want to find out once and for all:
  • which Activity Group has the overall best score, (mean)
  • which Activity Group has the highest middle number, (median)
  • what score was the most common, (mode)
  • which activity group has the highest range. (range)  
In everyday life people collect data to look for trends and make decisions. In order to analyse the information, we need to understand the different ways tolOOK at the data.
Success Criteria you will know you are successful when:
  • calculate the mean by adding up all the data (9 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 8 = 30) then divide thetotal by how many numbers there were (9, 4, 4, 5, 8 = 5 numbers so 30 ÷ 5 = 6).
  • calculate the median by ordering all numbers from smallest to biggest then selecting the middle number (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 5 is the middle number). If there are 6 numbers e.g. 4, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, then the median is halfway = 5.5.
  • calculate the mode by identifying which number occurs most often (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 4 because there are two of them). You can have more than one mode.
  • calculate the range by finding the difference between the highest and lowest numbers (9 - 4 = 5).

  • Mean:0,21,35   21 divided by 3 =7 my mean is seven.
  • Median: 21
  • Mode: none
  • Range:0-35=35

Activity group scores:23,23,14,

Nearly 40 people in Auckland have recently been diagnosed with the infectious measles disease.
Westlake Boys High School on Aucklands North Shore is one of the hardest hit communities with 20 ill students.
Several other Westlake Boys High pupils who have not been immunised against measles have been asked to stay away for the next two weeks.
Measles is a very serious disease that is highly contagious and can spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The symptoms include fever, a cough, sore eyes and a rash. There is no treatment, and complications can be severe.
The Auckland Health Service has estimated that around 750 people are at immediate risk of catching the highly contagious disease.
Dr. Julia Peters said the Health Service had been working with the North Shore school for just over a week when the first case of measles was found there.
"This is definitely more than what we'd normally see. We're working hard to contain the measles within the Auckland region."
Dr. Peters said many people who had come down with the disease had recently been overseas and, in particular, in the Philippines.
The public health service has sent information to parents and students at Westlake Boys High and asked that those students who are not sure whether they have been immunised against measles to stay away.
"What we're trying to do is isolate those students as well as those who have measles, because students who are not immunised can get sick," she said.
Another seven cases of measles in Auckland are being investigated - three of them from the same school.
What to watch for Symptoms
* High fever.
* Runny nose, cough, red eyes.
* Small white spots inside mouth.
* Red, blotchy rash on face and neck and later over entire body.

3) What is the Auckland Health Services main role in this measles outbreak? The health services roll is to keep the measles in the ackuland regionsis.

4) In the article Dr. Peters said “many people who had come down with the disease had recently been overseas and, in particular, in the Philippines.” Why do you think this is? I think It is because over in the Philippines they might have the measles.

5) In your opinion what would be the best way to avoid getting measles?the best way to avoid getting the measles I think is to get the injection or stay away from people with the measles.

Long way home

Milania Lang is only 5 years old, but she didn't let 6.8km of busy roads get in the way of an epic solo scooter journey.

Milania's intrepid outing began when mum Kamilla took her and two friends, plus Kamilla's 19-year-old niece Danielle, to watch a movie at the Auckland waterfront on a recent busy Sunday

"We'd been at the Lantern Festival and I'd heard there was a kid's movie on at the Wynyard Quarter. So I decided to take the children to see it."

With the three children and Danielle, Kamilla went to an information centre on the waterfront to ask about the film.

"They were only about a metre behind me. I thought Milania was just an arm's reach away." But setting out for Princes Wharf, Kamilla realised Milania was missing.

"I asked the others if they knew where she was; but they didn't. So we started frantically looking." But Milania was nowhere to be seen.

Security staff reviewed CCTV footage, which revealed Milania had looked away at the moment the others went into the centre and it showed her looking around, confused, and scootering off in the opposite direction.

Kamilla called the rest of Milania's family and they came immediately to join the search. After about an hour, the police were called.

One of the officers asked if there was any chance of Milania having gone home. Kamilla thought it unlikely but went with an officer to their home almost 7km away.

"I left the other children with my friend, and drove home in the car. The officer said it was time for us to alert the media and get a helicopter out. That really hit me hard."

They arrived at the family home, but Milania was nowhere to be seen. As they were driving back, a policewoman saw a small child four doors from the home, sitting on a footpath.

"She asked me 'is that her'," said Kamilla. And it was and she was very tired and quiet, but calm. The first thing she said to me was 'you lost me Mum'!

Milania explained she'd lost sight of the group and thought they must have headed home. "So she decided to scooter home to find us. She had to cross some of Auckland's busiest streets all by herself."

Milania's journey is all the more remarkable as she has been to the Wynyard Quarter only two or three times this summer.

Asked if she was scared or sad during her epic journey, Milania responded: "I cried, but just a little."
