Learning about minimum, maximum, and the middle (aka the median)

Author: kkruse  //  Category: Math, Uncategorized

The kids learned all about how to figure out the minimum, maximum, and middle of a set of data by measuring their head sizes and their arm spam.  They then had to get themselves in order from the minimum (smallest) to the maximum (largest) size.  The HUGE challenge was to do it without any talking.  This was challenging at first but they quickly got the hang of how to communicate about numbers without any words.  Once they were in order, I had them sit down starting with the minimum and the maximum, the next minimum and maximum, until we got to the median value.

This week is No Guff Week all across the Falmouth School District. Students make a commitment to be Peacebuilders and to take a stand against bullying. We had an All School Assembly yesterday and listened to songs & videos that promoted these themes.

Students at Morse Pond put together this video to demonstrate their commitment to “No Guff”.
