Average Athletics

CC_BY-NC-SA

One of the measures of central tendency is the mean/average. Many do not know much about the average other than it is calculated by "adding up all of the numbers and dividing by the number of numbers". This activity is designed to help students get a conceptual understanding of what an average is and not just how to calculate a numerical value.
