Averages

mediumblue

Summary

Award-winning maths teacher Jonny Heeley takes on the challenge of showing how averages work with a group of enthusiastic Key Stage 3 students.

This maths masterclass explores ways of teaching averages in a series of practical examples of everyday problems.

This video shows how the mean, median, mode and range of a set of numbers can be both helpful and misleading in understanding sets of data.

The objective is to enthuse teachers and teach students using situations that are easy and practical to set up in a school classroom.

Jonny Heeley's talent lies in empowering the students and encouraging them to express their thoughts and ideas out loud as together they work towards an understanding of the maths.
