Numeracy Homework 17th March: Averages

This week we have had great fun finding the averages of the hit points on our Pokémon cards.

We Are Learning To find an average (the mean)

  • Add all the numbers.
  • Divide the answer by how many numbers there are.
  • Use a method for addition (partitioning / column) and division (number line, compact, bus stop).

For homework this week complete another 5 or more questions from the sheets below-choose your own level of challenge.

Find the mean Pink

Find the mean Yellow

Find the mean Green

Find the mean Peach

Find the mean Blue

If you really want to challenge yourself, try to find some averages around the home-see Mrs Judd’s examples! This is optional:-
