Lesson objective: Compute the mean, median, and mode of a dataset.

This lesson helps to build procedural skill with calculating measures of center. Numeric datasets are used here because they support student focus on computation. This work develops students' understanding that the center of a dataset can be summarized using one number.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 1 (make sense of and persevere through problems) as they calculate multiple measures of center.
