Today we finished our data investigation called Who Are We? After collecting lots of data about the people in our class, we could finally answer the question: Who is the average Grade 4 student?
It was a little tricky to give a final answer. We had to organise our data and think carefully about whether to use the mean, median or mode for each category.
Would you like to meet the average student? It turns out that no-one in our class fits the profile. We created Average Adam to be our imaginary friend and represent us all. Read about his features below.
Average Adam is a boy. He is 9 years and 6 months old and his birthday is in December. He is 137.5cm tall and he can jump a distance of 126.5cm. Adam has been at BISS for 1 year and he travels to school by bus. He loves Maths and his strength is logical intelligence. Adam’s favorite colour is blue.
How do you compare with Adam?
