Here’s a super fun way Carolyn from N.Greene Jr. High used our Bowling Pin Set for her Common Core – Central Tendency lesson.

“7th grade Math (Common Core Topic: Central Tendency) Divide the class into two teams. Each student rolls the ball twice, and his/her score is recorded. The scores are averaged to find the mean of the team members. Then both team’s means are averaged together. Then the mode of the entire class is figured, the median, and finally the mean absolute deviation of each student (the absolute value of how much each student’s score varies from the class average.)  It’s a good way to get the kids up and moving, and show real-world application of math skills.”
