Middle School Lesson: Where is Everybody?

canadadatamap.jpgWhat do Michael J. Fox, basketball and Justin Bieber all have in common? They're all from Canada!

In Where is Everybody?, students will not only familiarize themselves with Canada's culture, geography and trivia, but will also learn the Rough Rule of Ten, create box-and-whisker plots and become more comfortable with fractions, decimals and percents.

In this lesson, students will:

  • Make estimates about real-life data
  • Work flexibly with fractions, decimals and percents to solve problems and make comparisons
  • Develop number sense
  • Find, use and interpret measures of center and spread
  • Discuss and understand the correspondence between data sets and their graphical representations
