An Idea for the Classroom: CaSQ 26 Calculating Mean, Median and Mode Using Excel

Do your students know how to calculate mean, median and mode in Excel? If they don't, they are about to learn, in CaSQ 26 - Calculating Mean, Median and Mode Using Excel.

In this activity, students use CensusAtSchool data on how many hours students sleep at night in Excel to calculate the mean, median and mode. This lesson is best suited to students in Year 7, and aligns with Australian Curriculum code ACMSP171.
