Lesson Plan
Lesson Title: Cup Stacking Challenge Grade: 6 Date:
Wednesday, November 23, 2015, Day _4

Subject/Strand: Math/Data Management and Probability Unit: Mean, Median, Mode, and Range Location:
Classroom

Time: (length in minutes): 100 (across 2 seperate periods)

Lesson Plan Description (What are you teaching? How does it fit into the context of the unit? What are the big
ideas/essential/enduring understandings?)

Students will work in groups to build a tower of cups and use the data to find the mean, median,
mode and range. This lesson builds on previous lessons in the unit and is the last new teaching
prior to review (Thursday) and quiz (Friday).

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS
Ontario Curricular Overall Expectations (numbers from documents and details)

read, describe, and interpret data, and explain relationships between sets of data;

Ontario Curricular Specific Expectations (numbers from documents and details) selected & listed from the Ont.
Curriculum, refined when necessary, has verbs that are observable & measureable, has realistic number of expectations (1 to 3), have
expectations that match assessment

demonstrate an understanding of mean (e.g., mean differs from median and mode because it is a value that balances a
set of data like the centre point or fulcrum in a lever), and use the mean to compare two sets of related data, with and
without the use of technology

Learning Goals Discuss with students: What will I be learning today? (clearly identify what students are expected to know
and be able to do, in language that students can readily understand.)

Today I will learn


To compare data sets and their mean, median, mode and range.

ASSESSMENT and EVALUATION


Success Criteria Discuss with students: How will I know I have learned what I need to learn? (Clearly identify the criteria
to assess students learning, as well as what evidence of learning students will provide to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and
thinking, in language that students can readily understand).
I can:
Can build your tower.
Calculate the mean, median, mode and range for 1st and 2nd round of the data.
Graph my groups mean, median, mode and range results for the two rounds.
Calculate the mean, median, mode and range for the classes 1st and 2nd round of the data.
Graph the classes mean, median, mode and range for the two rounds of the data.

Assessment How will I know students have learned what I intended?

enough detail that another teacher could replicate the lesson without a personal discussion.

Today, well be combining our data
exploration with graphing and some
hands-on activity.
Well be working in our groups to see
which group can build the tower of cups
using as many cups as possible. Students listen to instructions
Each group will get a bag of cups and
will have 5 minutes to discuss your
approach and even practice.
After the 5 minutes, youll have 1 min to
build your tower. When the 1min is over
youll count how many cups were used
and Ill record it on the board.
Youll then have another chance, but
this time youll only have 30 seconds.
Once the time is up youll count the cups
and Ill record them again.
Then, each group will graph their own
results on chart paper, comparing how
they did in the two rounds.
Then, I want you to use your own
groups data and calculate the mean,
median, mode and range for your group
this shouldnt take you too long.
Next, I want you to calculate the mean,
median, mode and range for the class
data.
Then, I want you to graph the mean,
median, mode and range data for the
class and compare it to your groups
graph.
The purpose of all this graphing and
calculating the mean, median, mode and
range, is that I want us to get a better
sense of how mean, median, mode and
range help us to understand data. Students should be thinking about kinds of graphs

The ones who moved will get to learn
about their new groups work. The ones
who stayed will be sharing their data,
graphing and calculations.
The purpose of sharing is so that you

can challenge one another nicely
about your work. The idea isnt to try
and find fault; the idea is to better
understand how the group worked, if
they achieved the success criteria, and if
you have any questions.
We will start the task in this period and
Students noting they will be assessing their own

What kind of graph will you use to
represent the data?

Success Criteria:
Youll know youre successfully if you:
1. Can build your tower.
2. Calculate the mean, median, mode
and range for your 1st and 2nd round of
the data.
3. Graph your groups mean, median,
mode and range results for the two
rounds.
4. Calculate the mean, median, mode
and range for the classes 1st and 2nd Students preparing for task and aware of

5. Graph the classes mean, median,
mode and range for the two rounds of
the data.
Ill be moving around the room if you
have any questions during the activity.
Ill be looking to see that youre working
well in your groups and are an active
member of your group and sharing ideas.
Remember, youll be sharing your results
with other students so be prepared to
answer questions.

Intro wrap-up:
1. Teacher asks if there are questions.
Confirms that students understand
success criteria.
2. Teacher calls up 1 student per group to
collect materials.

Teacher will gather the students attention
and split up the groups so students can learn
in their new groups.

Success Criteria:
Remember the success criteria for the
activity was:
o Can build your tower.
o Calculate the mean, median, mode and
range for your 1st and 2nd round of the data.
o Graph your groups mean, median, mode
and range results for the two rounds.
o Calculate the mean, median, mode and
range for the classes 1st and 2nd round of the Students share and question in their new groups.

o Graph the classes mean, median, mode and Students noting future work and linkages.
range for the two rounds of the data.
Keep these criteria in mind as your sharing
in your new groups.
[groups have 5 mins to share/question.
Teacher listen to discussion to determine if
whole class discussion is necessary listen
for depth of understanding and relationship of
discussion to success criteria]

Tomorrow, well be doing a review of mean,


median, mode and range so were ready
before Fridays quiz.

Any questions?

Extension Activities/Next Steps (where will this lesson lead to next)

Will lead to review and eventually a quiz.
